Created over 30 years ago to recognize the crucial role LGBTQ writers play in shaping the world, the Lammys celebrate the very best in LGBTQ literature. The 2021 Lammy Awards ceremony went virtual this year to share the celebration with as many members of our community as possible despite pandemic restrictions. The event was hosted by Rakesh Satyal and including a performance from Meshell Ndegeocello. To re-watch the ceremony, check it out on YouTube.
