The Lambda Literary Awards, also known as The Lammys, took place this year at the Great Hall at Cooper Union on Monday June 2nd. There was a Who's Who of LGBT litterati present from Alison Bechdel to Charles Rice Gonzalez to Kate Bornstein to Benoit Denizet-Lewis to Cecilia Tan, Sassafras Lowry and many more. A total of thirty awards were bestowed in front of an audience of over 500, the biggest ever. This slideshow contains some of my best shots from the Lammys with my little point and shoot, of the people I know the best.
