Congrats to our client, Logan Lee, for winning the coveted Silver Medal in the LGBT category of the Global Book Awards! In providing such awards, the aim of the GBA is to help readers discover new talent. GBA hopes to give authors the recognition they deserve, whether that is in their writing creativity, or in the way they have marketed their books to attract new readers.
In his breakout memoir Small Town Gay, Logan Lee shares his experience of reconciling his sexuality at a young age, with no like role models to look to for guidance. With a heart for education, Lee strives to be that example for the next generation, by inviting children, parents, and allies of the LGBTQ+ community to unify in the name of voice, tolerance, unconditional love, and above all things—home.
Lee is a traveling nurse who grew up gay in the small, fictional town of “Mercer” in Kentucky. With a big heart and a penchant for creative storytelling, he shares his early childhood experiences tiptoeing through life in a southern community that didn’t embrace his identity. In his breakout memoir Small Town Gay, Lee invites his readers to experience the beautiful southern culture of central Kentucky, his family’s interesting dynamics, his love for rich food, and his discovery in third grade and beyond that “he likes boys, not girls.”
All love is good love, according to Lee, and we all deserve to be exactly who we are, even if we don’t fit in with the norm. Having learned to be an advocate for himself, Lee now encourages others in the LGBTQ+ community to do the same. When he’s not writing, Lee is often on the move, working with critical care patients throughout the United States.
Lee is thrilled to have won this prestigious book award for his breakout memoir, which is a huge accomplishment. The award establishes Lee as an author who writes memoirs that are helpful, healing — and entertaining — to others. If you want to read Logan’s work, check out this link.
