The Greek deity Calamus was transformed with grief into a reed when his lover drowned. The character inspired Walt Whitman’s 'Calamus' poems, which celebrate gay love. And now he has inspired Boston’s biggest and best LGBT bookstore. With a full calendar of author talks and art exhibitions, and a regular electronic newsletter, Calamus is not only a bookstore, but also a community center.
