Golden Crown Literary Awards

The Goldies

Welcome to the site pages for the GCLS Literary Awards. These awards, also known as The Goldies, are presented each year at the Annual GCLS Conference to recognize excellence in Lesbian Literature.

At present, the GCLS recognizes this excellence in 16 "genre" categories and 5 special categories.  Every year, the Board of Directors receives new category proposals for their consideration.  The world of Lesbian Fiction is growing - and the GCLS is growing right along with it.
