from Amy King

A couple of months ago, Amazon quietly
unleashed some sort of campaign to strip certain books of their sales
rankings. Unfortunately (& not so coincidentally), most of the books targeted fell under the
“Gay/Lesbian” category. Once removed from the sales rankings and
placed within the “Adult” category, these books no longer show up in
search engines or in Amazon searches. In other words, sales death. How
to kill gay books in one easy step? Watch while Amazon quietly removes
gay and lesbian titles and renders them invisible. Censorship at its
deadliest. Many good people have already been posting and protesting across the internet,
and though you may not rely on big name middlemen for your goods, much
of America does. Make it your business to send a word of protest
Amazon’s way!
