Lamdba Literary Award Winners Announced

Lambda Literary has announced 26 winners of the 32nd Annual Lambda Literary Awards, known as the “Lammys." The awards were given across 24 categories to honor work that represents the best in LGBTQ literature and reflect the depth and breadth of the queer experience.  

On announcing the winners, the organization added a statement to support those fighting through troubling times. "While the Lammys are indeed something to celebrate, this is also a time of outrage and grief caused by the pandemic and state-sanctioned violence against black people," the organization said. "At Lambda Literary, we believe that LGBTQ literature inspires the radical imagination needed to dismantle white supremacy and build a more equitable world. We are grateful to this year's winners, whose work reflects a vast range of queer creativity, and we hope you can draw strength and insight from the writers honored today."
