Waving to my friend David Groff, who was the one to tell me Lemon Hound won the Lambda back in 2007, and is here again, just sending me this photo from AWP, as I was writing this post with the news that My Ariel is also up for a Lambda. I have been nominated a few times, and am very grateful, and honored, but I have never been able to attend the award ceremony–but this year I’m coming. June 2nd. NYC. Looking forward. Congrats to all the nominees. I hope you’re coming too, Joshua Whitehead and Kai Cheng Thom!
