Each night of the festival is centered around timely topics vital to Queer Black art-making including, including Politics & Activism, Black Aesthetics & Writing in Hollywood. The opening night will set the stage by bringing panelists Jordyn Jay founder of Black Trans Femmes in the Arts Collective, novelist George M. Johnson & others together for a discussion on Black Joy. The week will cap off with a discussion of Sex & the Body featuring Brontez Purnell, KOKUMO, Randa Jarrar & others. Additional featured speakers include Juliana Huxtable, Darnell Moore, Ianne Fields Stewart, t’ai freedom ford & many more. All events are free & offer audiences the opportunity to listen & engage in discussion via Zoom with some of the most crucial voices working today. Lambda LitFest is a program of Lambda Literary the nation's leading LGBTQ literary organization whose mission is to nurture & advocate for LGBTQ writers elevating the impact of their words to create community, preserve their legacies & affirm the value of their stories & lives. Lambda Litfest resists the oppressive nature of a white supremacist, ableist, cisgender & heteronormative world by creating a space that uplifts & celebrates Black, Indigenous & POC folks in the LGBTQ community. This virtual event is supported in part by an Arts Grant from the City of West Hollywood as well as support from the California Arts Council & the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs.
