With just over a week left to our challenge grant campaign we have some great news and some greater news. Thanks to 150 wonderful donors, as of yesterday we’ve raised over $15,000 to meet the Fall 2013 Challenge of our generous LLF supporters Al Baum, William Cohen, Steven Coulter, David McConnell, Curtis Scribner and Jan Zivic each of whom pledged $2500 in honor of LLF’s 25th Anniversary. Fantastic! 

And here’s the even greater news …  

Katherine V. Forrest, a recipient of the Lambda Literary Foundation’s Pioneer Award, has just contributed $2500 as an additional challenge for the remainder of the month. Forrest is the internationally recognized author of 15 works of fiction including, Curious WineDaughters of a Coral Dawn, and the Kate Delafield mystery series-which has won three Lambda Literary Awards.

Please help us double Katherine V. Forrest’s donation to raise an additional $5000 for LLF’s outstanding programs including the Lambda Literary Awards, our web magazine the Lambda Literary Review, the Writers Retreat for Emerging LGBT Voices and LGBT Writers in Schools.

Remember, your donations are tax-deductible and will be matched by Katherine Forrest dollar-for-dollar for the next $2500 we raise!

Wishing you the happiest holidays,




Tony Valenzuela
Executive Director
