LeeLynchThis was exciting! I’ve had the pleasure of running Lee Lynch’s Amazon Trail columns at lgbtSr every month. One of her stories was also included in the anthology I co-edited and published, Outer Voices Inner Lives (Lambda Literary Award finalist for anthology). So imagine my delight at reading she was both a panelist at last Saturday’s Golden Crown Awards and a winner for her collection of Amazon Trail columns, An American Queer. Congratulations, Lee! Well deserved. – Mark/Editor
