Living Out: Gay and Lesbian Autobiographies

David Bergman and Raphael Kadushin, Series EditorsGraphic reads: Winner of the 2002 and 2011 Publisher’s Service Award from the Lambda Literary Foundation in recognition of our exemplary work in the field of LGBT literature.

This award-winning series aims to represent the full range of LGBT autobiography. It encompasses a diversity of autobiographies that cross all ethnic and national boundaries—from new autobiographies by fresh voices to memoirs by established contemporary writers, from posthumous and historically important autobiographies to reprints of classic autobiographies.

Dedicated to embracing the full range of LGBT experience, Living Out recognizes that autobiography is a crucial gay genre—an essential way of reclaiming individual lives and telling a larger, collective story.

Please send all inquiries to David Bergman or UW Press Executive Editor Raphael Kadushin.
