And the Lambda Literary Award Winners Are...

By Harriet Staff


The 25th-annual Lambda Literary Awards (AKA The Lammys) were announced yesterday, after their fancy get-down at Cooper Union on June 3 got some shut-eye for the night. As we mentioned, it was a record year for the awards, for both nominees and publishers.

The winner in the Lesbian Poetry category (tough one!) was Sea and Fog, by Etel Adnan, Nightboat Books; and in Gay Poetry, He Do the Gay Man in Different Voices, Stephen S. Mills, Sibling Rivalry Press.

Etel Adnan's Sea and Fog, by the by, has also won the California Book Award for poetry! Ceremony is June 6 in San Francisco. Congrats congrats!
