Vrolijk Bookshop

A lively gay scene like the one Amsterdam has, is not complete without a gay bookshop. At Vrolijk Bookshop (the Dutch word for happy is vrolijk) you can find a wide selection of books: from lesbian pulp to ‘real’ literature, but also sociological and philosophical books on gay sexuality.


Gay films and magazines

There is also a special section for young gays and there are books on for instance parenting and being gay. Besides books you can also buy films and magazines at Vrolijk Bookshop and there is a gift shop full of small presents and things like calendars and post cards.

Take notice: books are Dutch only!
