Awards

Join Us in Celebrating the Best in LGBTQ Literature

Lammy seal

Finalists for the 33rd Annual Lambda Literary Awards will be announced in Spring 2021.

For 32 years, the Lambda Literary Awards have identified and honored the best lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender books. For a community that often finds ourselves the targets of legislative and actual violence, we also need and deserve pleasure, joy, and celebration, which is what the Lammys has endeavored to provide for more than 30 years.

If you missed any of the 2020 winners’ acceptance speeches from our virtual social media celebration in June, check out the playlist on our YouTube page.

And if any of the winning 2020 titles are still on your to-read list, you can order them off of our Lammys bookshelf on Bookshop.org, where a portion of the proceeds go to Lambda Literary.
