Bi Lines VII & the Bisexual Book Awards, which took place one week ago, was the seventh installment of the bisexual multi-arts reading and the second annual Bisexual Book Awards Ceremony. These photos show the Bisexual Book Awards Ceremony, capturing the presenters, and the talented authors as they receive their awards. Awards were given for Fiction, Non-fiction, Speculative Fiction (which includes Sci-fi, Fantasy, Horror and more), Teen/Young Adult Fiction, Biography/Memoir, Erotic Fiction/Erotica, Bisexual Book Publisher of the Year and Bi Writer of the Year.
Efrain John Gonzalez has been photographing bi and LGBT events for over 20 years and has been the official Bi Lines photographer since it started in 2006. He has two books of photography published, Ink & Steel: The Body Modification Photography of Efrain John Gonzalez, Schiffer Books and West Street, a book about the night life on the streets of the meat market. I interviewed Gonzalez last year when Ink & Steel came out and he has presented his photography at Bi Lines twice, as well as in museums, bookstores and galleries.
