Kim Fu and Raziel Reid finalists for U.S. Triangle Awards


Kim Fu

The Publishing Triangle announced B.C. authors Kim Fu and Raziel Reid as finalists for the 27th annual Triangle Awards, which celebrate the best LGBT fiction, non-fiction, and poetry titles published the year prior.

Fu is a finalist for the Edmund White Award for Debut Fiction for her novel For Today I Am a Boy (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt), about a young transgender Chinese immigrant who struggles with his parents’ desire for a strong masculine son in a family of daughters. Reid is a finalist for the Ferro-Grumley Award for LGBT Fiction for his Governor General’s Award–winning YA title When Everything Feels Like the Movies (Arsenal Pulp Press), which tells of glamourous teenaged Jude’s coming-of-age among his cliquish, homophobic peers.

A select group of finalists will read from their respective books in New York City on April 22. Prize winners will be announced at a free awards ceremony the following evening.
