Over 500 writers, publishing professionals, and celebrities came together on this special night to celebrate excellence in LGBTQ literature. I was a presenter.
Featured here in Gay City News. They quoted my onstage patter:
Writer and scholar Karla Jay, a founding member of the Gay Liberation Front, which as a group is a grand marshal at this year’s LGBTQ Pride March, told how she’s been in demand for appearances in person and for films.
“It’s like being on a book tour without the book,” she said. She recalled the first Pride March and talked about preparing for the 50th:
“I persisted. I survived,” she said, also quipping, “I was checking the ‘In Memoriam’ list to make sure I wasn’t on it.”
