Atlantan among Lambda Literary nominees

Add this share

imageTransgender writer and Atlanta resident Scott Turner Schofield is among the 105 finalists competing for a Lambda Literary Award.

The nominees, which span 22 categories and represent 72 publishers, were announced today by the Lambda Literary Foundation. The Los Angeles-based group for gay writers and readers will announce the winners May 28.

Schofield is among the nominees in two categories — transgender and LGBT Drama — for “Two Truths and a Lie” from Homofactus Press. Schofield describes the book as “a memoir passing as three solo plays” on his web site.

From inside his young life on the Homecoming Court and Debutante Ball circuit (in a dress), armed with only a decoder ring and a gifted tongue, Schofield comes out with truly unbelievable stories of a body in search of an identity. By turns slapstick and slap-to-the-face, this drama invites audiences and readers to explore gender, sex, sexuality, and self in their own first person.

The Atlanta Pride Committee picked Schofield as one of its two grand marshals for the 2008 Pride parade.
