Sponsor the Lambda Literary Awards

Join us in championing LGBTQ writers at the most fabulous night in queer books.

The Lammys, or Lambda Literary Awards, have consistently drawn an audience representing every facet of publishing. The awards have ranged over many categories, reflecting the wide spectrum of LGBTQ+ books, and from the very first year, they have made the statement that lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans stories are part of the literature of this nation. Lambda Literary knows how essential it is to have these safe spaces for this community in a moment when our voices and our stories are being weaponized against our very lives across the country, supporting our storytellers- whether their media centers the page, the stage or the survey, is more critical by the day. The Awards offer us the chance to celebrate LGBTQ+ literary excellence and share joy in coming together as a community.

Why should you sponsor the Lambda Literary Awards?

  • Reach a large national audience of culture makers, change agents, and LGBTQ book buyers.
  • Position your organization as a visible, committed ally of the LGBTQ community.
  • Make a direct, material impact on the lives of LGBTQ writers and creatives.
  • Support the life-changing work of a one-of-a-kind LGBTQ arts organization.

Your support and presence at this event will ensure that the legacy and critical work of the Lambda Literary are sustained.

  • Expand the Lambda Literary Writers Retreat for Emerging LGBTQ+ Voices so that we can support even more writers around the country.
  • Provide resources for writers LGBTQ+ through The Review and our website.
  • Bring LGBTQ+ writers into schools to help spark the passion of students to continue in the arts.
  • Work towards bringing back LitFest, our LGBTQ+ focused festival, which brings another way for writers and readers to connect.
