“If every gay writer joined LLF maybe we could at last have a powerful organization that would fight for the oh so many things we need in this homophobic world.”
Larry Kramer, Pioneer Award Recipient (2010)

“The Lambda Literary Foundation rocks.  Period.  For readers, for writers, for everyone: now more than ever.”
Stacey D’Erasmo, Lammy Award winning author of A Seahorse Year and, most recently, The Sky Below

“Lambda Literary is the sole organization in the world dedicated to promoting and honoring GLBT literature.   Our fiction and poetry, like serious writing everywhere, is in danger of being silenced through censorship, internet plagiarism, the closing of GLBT bookstores and the collapse of public education.  It’s a general problem exacerbated by the special problems facing the gay community.  Fight back in the only way available: join Lambda Literary today!”
Edmund White, Pioneer Award Recipient (2009) and author, most recently, of the Lammy nominated, City Boy
