GLBTQ.COM GENERAL EDITOR WINS MONETTE-HORWITZ AWARD

Claude J. Summers, General Editor of glbtq.com, the World's Largest Encyclopedia of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Culture, Receives Award for Combating Homophobia

Chicago (June 3, 2008) -- Claude J. Summers, General Editor of www.glbtq.com, the world's largest encyclopedia of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer (glbtq) culture, received a Monette-Horwitz Trust Award at the Lambda Literary Awards ceremony in West Hollywood, California on May 29, 2008. 

The Monette-Horwitz Trust provides annual awards to individuals who are, through their work, making significant contributions to eradicating homophobia.  Trust board member Chris Freeman cited Summers' extensive publications in glbtq Studies and his editorship of glbtq.com, which he called "the world's largest online resource for glbtq cultural history," as he granted the award to Summers.

In accepting the award, Summers expressed gratitude to the advisory committee and trustees of the Monette-Horwitz Trust and the contributors to glbtq.com as well as to his life-partner and frequent collaborator Ted-Larry Pebworth and glbtq.com publisher Andrew "Wik" Wikholm. Pebworth and Wikholm, Summers said, "share my own deep conviction that understanding and disseminating the fascinating history and immense cultural contributions of glbtq individuals and groups are important forms of activism."
