By Sue Landers, Executive Director, Lambda Literary
Out of an abundance of caution in light of COVID-19, we have come to the heart-wrenching decision to not hold an in-person Lambda Literary Awards ceremony this June in New York City.
The good news, though, is that this year's Lammy winners will still be announced in June, in an online format to be determined. We also will bring our beautiful community of LGBTQ book lovers together for a fabulous, in-real-life celebration later this fall.
We will be in touch in the weeks ahead about our plans for a re-imagined celebration and how you can get involved.
In the meantime, we hope that in lieu of a ticket, you will consider making a donation to Lambda Literary. Your support will help us continue our work to honor this year's finalists and winners.
While the COVID-19 pandemic means that this year's celebration must take a new form, rest assured that Lambda Literary's mission remains unchanged. We will continue championing LGBTQ authors, whose books feel especially life-affirming right now.
Let’s keep writing, reading, and looking out for each other.
Thank you, family!
