We still need your help! We’ve raised a little more than half of our goal of $15,000 for LLF’s Fall Challenge Grant and Membership Drive. To those of you who have already contributed to our campaign, thank you very much for supporting our work on behalf of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender literature.

Through the rest of November, Lambda Literary Foundation supporters Al Baum, William Cohen, Steven Coulter, David McConnell, Curtis Scribner and Jan Zivic, each of whom contributed $2500 to the Challenge Grant, will match your donations dollar for dollar! Please give whatever you can afford whether that’s $50, $250 or $1000. This is a rare opportunity to see your gifts to Lambda Literary doubled.



LLF’s Challenge Grant and Membership Drive will match your financial contributions to help us continue to deliver excellent, one-of-a-kind programming:

  • The Lambda Literary Awards arefor the past quarter century, the most prestigious literary prize in the LGBT community.
  • The Lambda Literary Review at www.LambdaLiterary.org, with over 40,000 monthly readers, is the web’s go-to resource for LGBT literature, publishing more queer book reviews than any other publication in the world, as well as author interviews, features on our thriving literary community, the latest calls for submission, and publishing industry news relevant to writers, publishers, editors, agents, librarians, bloggers and, of course, readers.
  • Writers Retreat for Emerging LGBT Voices is the first residency of its kind ever offered to LGBT writers: a one-week intensive immersion in fiction, nonfiction, genre fiction, or poetry and an unparalleled opportunity to learn from the very best writers and publishing industry professionals. Since its inception in 2007, the Retreat has graduated over 250 Fellows who are the future of LGBT literature.
  • LGBT Writers in Schools, in collaboration with the Gay/Straight Educators Alliance, is pairing our community’s authors with English classrooms in high school and college to bring our rich literary traditions to young people.

The Lambda Literary Foundation can’t do this vital work without your support so please make your donation today to help us reach our $15,000 goal. Remember, whatever you give through the end of the month will be doubled and will help raise $30,000 for our programs and services.

We sincerely thank you for your support!
