$25,000 Challenge Campaign continues
Your donations are matched dollar for dollar 

Lambda’s one-of-a-kind literary programs need your support today. 


Seven extraordinary donors–Darla Baker, Al Baum, Steven Coulter, David Ebershoff, John Faubion, Chuck Forester and Kay Percy–have taken up the call to support Lambda by pledging a total of $25,000 and asking you to match their donations toward our fall challenge fundraising goal of $50,000.

No other LGBTQ or arts nonprofit serves a global audience of readers, writers, educators, students, librarians and publishing professionals like Lambda Literary.

Your tax-deductible donations support our LGBTQ literary programming:

Lambda’s LGBTQ Writers in Schoolsin partnership with the New York City Department of Education, brings LGBTQ literature into the K-12 classrooms of the largest school district in the nation. 

Lambda LitFest Los Angeles (March 11-12, 2017) will offer thought-provoking panel discussions, how-to workshops, readings and literary-inspired parties free and open to the public. Call for proposals now open!

The Writers Retreat for Emerging LGBTQ Voices has become an essential residency for up-and-coming queer writers seeking to improve their craft, build a community of peer support and make valuable connections with publishing insiders.

The Lambda Literary Review online magazine (LambdaLiterary.org) publishes more LGBTQ book reviews, in-depth author interviews, features, queer literary news and calls for submission than any other publication in the world.

Lambda Literary recently published the third issue of Nepantla: A Journal Dedicated to Queer Poets of Color. Also available is the Emerge anthology of writings by students of Lambda’s emerging writers residency, with a special introduction by bestselling author of We the Animals, Justin Torres.


The Lambda Literary Award 
is the most important LGBTQ literary prize in the world. No other event brings as much visibility (and glamour) to queer literature than The Lammys. See the list of current submissions.

If you are not a current supporter of Lambda Literary, please consider becoming a member today and see your tax-deductible gift doubled.

If you are already a memberplease use this opportunity to increase your 2016 contribution which will be matched.

Whether you can afford $10, $25, $100 or more, every donation supports these unique programs and is doubled thanks to our challenge grant donors. Help us reach our goal of raising $50,000 by making a donation today.
