The first and most enduring award for LGBTQIA+ books is the Stonewall Book Awards, sponsored by the American Library Association's Rainbow Round Table (formerly the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Round Table).  Three Stonewall Book Awards are presented to English language works published the year prior to the announcement date.  The award is announced in January/February and presented to the winning authors or editors at the American Library Association Annual Conference in June.
