The Lambda Literary Foundation has been recognizing the best of LGBT writing since 1987, providing visibility to often marginalized writers and literature. This year’s award winners represent a wide range of genres and come from major publishing houses as well as independent presses. All of the selections look like fantastic additions to a summer reading list.
One of the features of this year’s ceremony was this video compilation from the “What LGBTQI Book Saved Your Life” campaign. It’s a powerful testament to the importance of LGBT literature. Look for the short clip that features Giovanni’s Room, this year’s One Book, One College selection.
