Membership is open to anyone interested in the growth of
LGBTQ writers, literature, and publishers. Members come from
all walks of life: book and magazine writers, editors,
agents, marketing, sub-rights, publicity and sales people,
booksellers, designers, librarians, and general book lovers.
Annual dues begin at $40 and are tax-deductible as a
business expense. As part of your membership, you will
receive our periodic e-newsletter (if you’re not doing so
already); you’ll get alerts about our social activities in
the New York metropolitan area and be eligible for any
membership discounts; and you’ll have the satisfaction to
know that you are supporting the Triangle in its primary
mission, promoting LGBTQ literature through its award
programming, which gives out $12,000 in prize money each
spring. Our awards shine much needed light on the best
lesbian, gay, bisexual, and gender-variant literature

standing are eligible to submit books to our awards program
with a reduction in the submission fee.
Our basic individual membership is $40 per year.
A family membership, available to 2+ people sharing the same
address, is $70 per year.
