Lambda Literary Award Finalists You Must Read

In celebration of the 2013 finalists, we review five nominated works of LGBT literature that should be at the top of you must-read list.



No Straight Lines by Justin Hall

Queer comics appeared in gay newspapers, gay bookstores, punk zines, and other underground publications. Unrestricted by the conservative boundaries of the mainstream, queer creators tackled complex issues important to the LGBT community – giving rise to some of the best comics the genre has ever seen.

Curated by award-winning cartoonist Justin Hall (True Travel Tales, Glamazonia), No Straight Lines: Four Decades of Queer Comics celebrates this vibrant underground by gathering a colossal collection of the works for the first time.
