On June 1, 2021, the Lambda Literary Awards went virtual, announcing all the awards to attendees via Zoom. The selection panel consisted of more than 60 literary professionals; more than 1,000 books were submitted from over 300 publishers! There are many folks celebrating Pride Month this June and what a way to kick it off! Lambda Literary has been championing LGBTQ authors and books for over 30 years and if the submissions alone are any measure to entertain the idea, will continue to champion the preservation of their culture and legacies for 30 more to come. Congratulations to all the winners!
