"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 September 29-October 6
Lambda LitFest's premier event occurs Saturday, September 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
