Lambda Literary presents the 2nd Annual Lambda LitFest in Los Angeles, Sept. 29-Oct. 6

Stellar roster of performers includes Jewelle Gomez, Bamby Salcedo, and Patrisse Cullors

Lambda Literary presents its second annual Lambda LitFest Los Angeles, a week-long, LGBTQ literary festival, from Sept. 29 - Oct. 6, 2018. Held at 25 venues across Los Angeles County, the festival features community-curated performances, talks, and low-cost writing workshops.

'Lambda LitFest LA is a unique way for Angelenos to experience all that queer literary LA has to offer,' said Sue Landers, Executive Director. 'It is a community driven, collective action that amplifies queer voices and celebrates our lives.'

Live Performances, Talks, and Exhibits from Sept. 29 - Oct. 6
Lambda LitFest's premier event occurs Saturday, Sept. 29, with a full day of discussions, workshops, and mingling at the Japanese American Cultural and Community Center (244 San Pedro St, Los Angeles, CA 90012). Saturday's program features four panels and six writing workshops, covering topics from writing queer characters for movies and TV, to geek culture, and queer sex worker narratives. Attendees are invited to check out the exhibitor fair between events to learn more about local organizations helping to enrich the cultural legacy of Los Angeles.

Lambda LitFest LA continues the following week with forty community curated events in neighborhoods across LA county.

The festival closes at Plummer Park in West Hollywood (7377 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90046) with a live taping of the LA Review of Books Radio Hour Podcast with Patrisse Cullors, co-founder of Black Lives Matter.

Lambda LitFest is made possible through the generous support of the City of West Hollywood, the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, UCLA Extension Writers' Program, the California Arts Council, a state agency, and presenting media partner, The Los Angeles Blade.
