Supporting Youth

Since 2015, Lambda Literary and the NYC Department of Education have worked together to bring LGBTQ writers into classrooms across New York City. The LGBTQ Writers in Schools Program provides critically necessary, safe spaces for students to talk about great books, queer life, and how to thrive as an LGBTQ person.

The program serves students across all grade levels, K-12, and provides access to award-winning books and authors as well as professional development on how to deliver an LGBTQ-inclusive curriculum.  The school program is currently offered virtually.
