Created over thirty years ago to recognize the crucial role LGBTQ writers play in shaping the world, the Lammys celebrate the very best in LGBTQ literature. Since the inception of the Lammys in 1989, more than 3,500 books have been named finalist or winner, an imprimatur that bookstores, libraries, and individuals use to stock their shelves.
Finalists and winners for the 34th annual Lammy Awards will be celebrated in an immersive virtual award ceremony on Saturday, June 11th, hosted by drag queen and visual artist Sasha Velour. Event registration starts at $50 USD, and includes a gift bag of digital offerings from our friends and sponsors, as well as access to an afternoon of readings and talks with our finalists prior to the evening’s ceremony at 6pm ET. Proceeds benefit Lambda Literary’s educational programs for LGBTQ young people and emerging writers.
The event will be captioned and include live ASL interpretation.
