Awards & Book Lists

The first and most enduring award for LGBTQ books is the Stonewall Book Awards, sponsored by the American Library Association's Rainbow Round Table.


For over 30 years, the Lambda Literary Awards (the “Lammys”) have identified and honored the best lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender books.


The American Library Associations Rainbow Round Table (formerly the GLBT Round Table) is the nation's first gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender professional organization. In addition to sponsoring the Stonewall Book Award, the Rainbow Round Table provides professional resources such as book lists, reviews, detailed bibliographies, and more.
