Increasing rents eject the famous LGBT bookstore in the gay district of Paris – Books

-

The oldest LGBT bookstore in France is being expelled from the modern gay district of Paris due to the vertiginous increase in rentals driven by gentrification, tourism and the best brands that have opened stores there.

“Les Mots a la Bouche” has been a milestone in the Marais, one of the most sought after areas in the French capital, since its opening in the early 1980s.

But the owner now wants the rent to increase four times, according to the market rate, and the bookstore will have to relocate after more than 36 years, Nicolas Wanstok, who works at the bookstore, told AFP.

Les Mots a la Bouche is a historical bookstore, the Vice Mayor of Culture of Paris, Christophe Girard, told AFP.

“We are very attached to him and our goal is to save him. We continue to look for options.”

Several historical establishments in the Marais, which was also the traditional Jewish quarter of the city, have been expelled for very high rents.
