To our friends in the LGBTQ literary community,

Yesterday’s election is a stunning blow for us, this country, and the world. I know we all need time to grieve and process. It’ll take time for this sick feeling in my stomach to go away.

That being said, our work at Lambda Literary is now more important than ever before. Our LGBTQ books and the authors who write them are part of the solution to ensure our community remains strong. Readers and publishers are part of the solution as well. We at Lambda Literary are going to continue doing this work stronger than before. We have too much to lose and I personally refuse to concede the hard-fought ground we’ve recently gained.

The next four years may be full of outrage–Lambda Literary wants to be a source of light for our community.

Thinking of you all,

Tony Valenzuela, Executive Director
