Toronto Kamp Publishing Company […]




Toronto Kamp Publishing Company, publishers of Two, The Male Nude, and Gay Giggle, moved from 457 Church Street to 292 Yonge Street. The operation soon opened K.K. Books, which stocked the largest selection of gay-oriented publications available in Canada at the time. In the early days, K.K. Books was run by Richard Kerr (of the Music Room and the Melody Room) and Kurt Lauer (of the Melody Room). The bookstore continued to operate into the early 1970s. (see also February 6, 1966.)
