The longlist for the 2013 Polari First Book Prize and the new sponsor of the £1,000 award were announced last night at the Polari literary salon at the Southbank Centre. Our very own LGBT editor Paul Burston is the man behind the glamorous prize which celebrates a first book which explores the LGBT experience. Now in its third year, it’s exciting news that the prize has attracted a major sponsor, Société Générale UK LGBT Network, which will donate the £1,000 prize money to this year’s winner. If you haven’t been down to a Polari literary salon before, we highly recommend it, and not just to see what flamboyant outfit host Paul will be wearing.

Read the longlist at polariliterarysalon.co.uk. The winner will be announced on November 13 and it will be Polari’s sixth birthday party too.
