Diana Souhami shortlisted for the Polari Book Prize 2021
Now in its tenth year, the Polari Prize is the UK’s first and largest LGBTQ+ book award. Established to promote writing that explores the LGBTQ+ experience, Polari also focuses on amplifying diverse voices through a series of literary events, including the regularly touring Polari Salon.
The prize is awarded in two categories – Polari Book Prize and Polari First Book Prize – to celebrate emerging and established LGBTQ+ literary talent respectively.
The winner of the 2021 Polari Book Prize will be announced at an in-person event at the Southbank Centre on 30th October.
