The winners of the 2023 Lambda Literary Awards, given each year to books by LGBTQ+ writers, were announced at a ceremony Friday evening in New York.

K-Ming Chang took home the lesbian fiction award for her story collection, Gods of Want, which a Kirkus critic praised as “lurid, funny, strange, and deftly sorrowing—an important new voice.” The gay fiction prize went to Danny Ramadan for The Foghorn Echoes, while Gwendolyn Kiste was given the bisexual fiction award for Reluctant Immortals, and Cat Fitzpatrick won the transgender fiction prize for The Call-Out.

Hafizah Augustus Geter was named the winner in the LGBTQ+ nonfiction category for The Black Period: On Personhood, Race, and Origin. Emma Grove’s The Third Person took home the transgender nonfiction prize, and Maria San Filippo’s Appropriate Behavior won in the bisexual nonfiction category.

Kathryn Schulz won in the lesbian memoir/biography category for Lost & Found, while Edgar Gomez took home the gay memoir/biography prize for High-Risk Homosexual.

Sonora Reyes’ National Book Award finalist The Lesbiana’s Guide to Catholic School was named the LGBTQ+ young adult winner. The LGBTQ+ children’s books winner was Wallace West’s Mighty Red Riding Hood, while Maulik Pancholy’s Nikhil Out Loud won in the LGBTQ+ middle-grade category.

The Lambda Literary Awards, or Lammys, were created in 1989. A full list of this year’s winner is available at Lambda Literary’s website.
