...And The Winner of the 2008 LAMMY For BEST YOUNG ADULT NOVEL with GLBTQ Content, Published in 2007, Is...

I just got home from the Lammy's, and it was an amazing event, full of GLBTQ literary luminaries, pioneers, and lots of generous baton-passing from one generation to another.

In addition to how exciting it was to have Perry's amazing book "Hero" win for best YA novel, it was very cool that two other books featured here on this blogsite won in their categories.

"Split Screen" by Brent Hartinger won the Bisexual Lammy Award!

And "Call Me By Your Name" by Andre Aciman won the Men's Fiction Lammy Award!
(I'll post on this book next week - I promise!)

The Lambda Literary Foundation truly lived up to their mission with last night's event - to celebrate, promote and encourage great GLBTQ literature... And now we have three winners to cheer!

Congratulations to Perry, Brent, and Andre!

Have a great weekend everyone,
