We could probably name a hundred, but here are five reasons it is crucial that you support Lambda’s LGBTQ Writers in Schools Program today, as we continue our spring fundraising drive through the rest of April

5 Reasons to Support LGBTQ Writers in Schools!

  1. To Resist: The Trump administration rescinded protections for transgender students in public schools. The most vulnerable among us urgently need your support.
  2. To Educate: LGBTQ-specific curriculum in schools is still rare and Lambda’s Writers in Schools Program provides valuable instruction about queer lives through queer literature.
  3. To Support: Anti-LGBTQ bullying is a problem in schools. Reading queer stories changes hearts and minds and helps create more supportive environments for kids.
  4. To Foster: When a lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender writer visits a classroom, they give LGBTQ students positive role models which assures them they are not alone.
  5. To Save Lives: Most of us have a story about a book that offered us guidance at a time of extreme need. LGBTQ books save lives every day.

Please support Lambda’s LGBTQ Writers in Schools Program by making a tax-deductible contribution today.

Lambda Literary would like to thank our 2017 Writers in Schools publishing partners HarperCollins Publishers, Macmillan Publishers, Penguin Random House, and Simon & Schuster.
