The Lambda Literary Foundation has launched a new online home for LGBT book lovers:
"The new Lambda Literary webzine will aggregate the best links from LGBTQ and mainstream book news websites and newspapers, feature provocative interviews, under-reported stories, and thoughtful, of-the-moment book reviews and nurture a social community that comments, critiques, links back, twitters, blogs, and interacts both online and in person.
'We're here; we're queer; we read. And on March 1st, we'll be even more visible to the world and to each other.' says Lambda Literary Foundation board member Nicola Griffith. 'We're a community that loves books. We need books. All kinds of books: yaoi and high lit, graphic novels and celebrity tell-alls, heart-wrenching memoir and YA fantasy. We read to save our lives. We write, we edit. We publish, distribute, review, sell, advertise, lend, and buy. And Lambda Literary will now be home for the whole of the brilliantly diverse community that creates and supports our literature.'"
With gay bookstores dying right and left, it's great to see this community come to life.
