The Road Out: Lambda Literary Surveys the Future of LGBTQ Writing

  • Tampa Convention Center, First Floor, Room 23 333 S Franklin St Tampa, FL 33602 (map)

In the 30 years since its founding, Lambda Literary has advocated for LGBTQ writers and readers as we confronted AIDS, debated marriage, grappled with issues of equality and justice, and sought to further a diverse and inclusive queer/trans culture. Now, amid renewed oppression and threat, how best can Lambda Literary and LGBTQ writers foster a proactive, sustainable place for ourselves? Literary activists affiliated with Lambda Literary lead a conversation with the community on the path forward.

Confirmed panelists are William Johnson, Joy Ladin, Amy Scholder, Brandi Spaethe, and Tony Valenzuela.
