When touring the GLBT area called Davie Village in Vancouver do not miss Little Sister's Bookstore. It is in the same area our Sat. Night pre-sailaway party is located.
Little Sister's Book and Art Emporium, also known as Little Sister's Bookstore, but usually called "Little Sister's," is an independent bookstore in the Davie Village / West End of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, a predominantly gay community. The bookstore opened in 1983.
The bookstore is famous for being embroiled in a legal battle with the Canada Border Services Agency over the importation of what the agency has labeled "obscene materials". These materials, nearly all dealing with male-male or female-female sexuality, are routinely seized at the border. The same publications, when destined for mainstream booksellers in the country, have often been delivered without delay or question. Glad Day Bookshop, an LGBT bookstore in Toronto, has faced similar difficulties.
Its travails were fictionalized as a subplot of the film Better Than Chocolate. A feature length documentary film, Little Sister's vs. Big Brother (2002), has also been released about the bookstore.
