Love Cake has won the 2012 Lambda Literary Award!
In June, I was pleasantly blown away to get a text message that I won the goddamn Gay Literary Grammies. I am still blown away to win this award for all of us queer, brown, non academic, grassroots writers, poets and cultural workers who deserve to live in history.
