Aaron Devor - Lambda Literary Award Finalist

Aaron Devor is a 2014 Lambda Literary Award Finalist.   His book, The Transgender Archives:  Foundations for the Future, has been nominated under the LGBT NonFiction category.

The 27th Annual Lambda Literary Awards--or the "Lammys," as they are affectionately known--kick off another record breaking year with the announcement of the finalists.  They were chosen from a record 818 submissions from 407 publishers.   Submissions came from major mainstream publishers and from academic presses, from both long-established and new LGBT publishers, as well as from emerging publish-on-demand technologies.   The winners will be announced at a gala ceremony on Monday evening, June 1, 2015, in New York City.

"Each year, the Lammys bring national attention to the best LGBTQ books, which are often overlooked by the mainstream media and might otherwise be forgotten," said Lambda Literary Board President, S. Chris Shirley. "This critical program of Lambda Literary not only recognizes the outstanding work of these talented authors, but also underscores the importance of LGBTQ stories, which are fundamental to the preservation of our culture."

Now in their twenty-seventh year, the Lambda Literary Awards celebrate achievement in lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) writing for books published in 2014.   More than 100 literary professionals, including booksellers, book reviewers, librarians, authors, and previous Lammy winners and finalists volunteered countless hours of reading, critical thinking, and invigorating discussion to select the finalists in 24 categories.
