Considered the Oscars of queer publishing, the annual Lambda Literary Awards will not be held in person, but announced on June 1 on the Foundation's website.

"Out of an abundance of caution in light of COVID-19, we have come to the heart-wrenching decision to not hold an in-person Lambda Literary Awards ceremony this June in New York City," the Foundation posted on its website.

"In the meantime, we hope that in lieu of a ticket, you will consider making a donation to Lambda Literary. Your support will help us continue our work to honor this year's finalists and winners."

This year's finalists offer an expansive to-read list of fiction, memoir, poetry, mystery, science fiction, erotica and other genres in gay, lesbian, bisexual, and trans categories.

Check out the finalists on the LLF website.
