The Green Carnation Prize


The Green Carnation Prize honours the best in fiction and memoir by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender writers worldwide, including works in translation. Since 2014, the award has been presented in association with Foyles, with the award ceremony and supporting events to be hosted at our flagship store.

The prize was born when journalist and blogger Simon Savidge saw a tweet by the author Paul Magrs bemoaning the lack of a literary award for gay men; a panel for the first year's judging was swiftly assembled.

The 2016 shortlist was announced on the 28th April and the winner on 22nd May at Foyles, Charing Cross Road, was declared to be David France's insider account of the AIDS epidemic, How to Survive a Plague: The Story of How Activists Tamed AIDS. Read the announcement here.
