It’s that time of the year again, folks. LAMBDA has announced their finalists yesterday for the 2020 year award ceremony in 24 different categories. Each book Is judged by over 60 judges, literary professionals who “spent countless hours considering a record-breaking number of submissions.
As LAMDA notes, “For many LGBTQ authors, the Lammys were among the first awards to record their work,” which is important, considering many of the bigger publishing companies are not putting in the work to properly sell nor even recognize their diverse titles.
This year the 32nd annual Lammy’s will be hosted by Bowen Yang, a well known comedian who has been working on the writing staff of Saturday Night Live since September 2018. The awards ceremony will be held at the Skirball center, NYU in New York City on June 8th. Tickets are going fast, however, so make sure you catch them before they’re sold out! Available sections are: VIP & Reception at $250.00; General Admission at $150.00; and Accessible (ADA) Seating between $15.00 to $250.00.
