Vancouver writer Hasan Namir’s debut novel, God in Pink (Arsenal Pulp Press), won in the Gay Fiction category, while Serbian-Canadian poet Miodrag Kojadinovic’s Érotiques Suprèmes (Choose the Sword Press) took home the prize for best Gay Erotica. Beyond: The Queer Sci-Fi & Fantasy Comic Anthology (Beyond Press), edited by Halifax comics writer Sfé R. Monster and assistant editor Taneka Stotts, won in the LGBT Anthology – Fiction category.

The writers were celebrated at a ceremony at the NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts on June 6.
