The Rainbow Awards are the brainchild of Elisa Rolle, author of Days of Love, a retrospective of LGBTQ love through the ages. Every year, Elisa single-handedly wrangles books, judges, charitable donations, communications, and promotions, which is quite a job. This year, for example, there were over 450 books, nearly 170 judges, and a total of $17,300 raised for numerous charities around the world. I’m honored by my award, but if anyone deserves a medal, it’s Elisa.
There are so many wonderful books on the list of winners, honorable mentions and runners-up. Why not toddle over and pick out a few new favorites?
