Who Took Home This Year’s LAMBDA Literary Awards?

A virtual ceremony for the 33rd annual awards was held June 1, hosted by LAMBDA-winner Rakesh Satyal.

Coming on the heels of a year when we all read maybe more than we have since the halcyon days of summer vacations during high school, there seemed to be an even higher level of excellence nominated for the 2021 LAMBDA Literary Awards!

Hosted virtually by Rakesh Satyal June 1, the winners were chosen by a panel of over 60 literary professionals. Additionally, special awards were given to four writers: Ana-Maurine Lara received the Randall Kenan Prize for Black LGBTQ Fiction; Sarah Gerard and Brontez Purnell received the Jim Duggins, PhD Outstanding Mid-Career Novelist Prize; Nancy Agabian received the Jeanne Córdova Prize for Lesbian/Queer Nonfiction; and the Judith A. Markowitz Award for Emerging LGBTQ Writers was awarded to Taylor Johnson and T Kira Madden.
