The Lambda Literary Awards identify and celebrate the best lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender books of the year and affirm that LGBTQ stories are part of the literature of the world. The Lammys, which receive national and international media attention, bring together 600 attendees—including nominees, celebrities, sponsors, and publishing executives—to celebrate excellence in LGBTQ publishing. It is the most prestigious and glamorous LGBTQ literary event in the world. Winning a Lammy can literally launch a writer’s career.

No other nonprofit organization does more to promote LGBTQ literature than Lambda Literary, whose national arts and education programs honor excellence, preserve our culture, promote visibility, create community and encourage development of emerging LGBTQ writers.

The Guardian newspaper said of the Lammys: "... Steeped as they are in celebrity and ceremony, the Lammys aren't as stuffy or straight as many LGBT awards shows often are: they were unabashedly, gleefully queer, representing the many facets of queer life."
