At Lambda Literary, we believe there are many ways to combat injustice and celebrate Pride —in the streets, at the polls, with our wallets, and through the stories we choose to lift up. 

Historically, LGBTQ writers have deftly addressed moments like these by giving us writing filled with inspiration, anger, humanity—and joy, because every revolution is bereft without it.

This Pride we are hosting a series of virtual events we hope you will both enjoy and draw strength from. Next week, we are hosting a dynamic conversation between writers Cyrus Dunham and Meredith Talusan. See details and register below

The celebrated writers discuss queer memoirs & the art of writing from a personal place.

Wednesday, June 24th 8pm EST 

A captioned recording of this event will be posted to Lambda Literary’s YouTube Channel.
