The Gaylactic Spectrum Awards are given to works of science fiction, fantasy and horror that explore LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) topics in a positive way. Established in 1998, the show more awards were initially presented by the Gaylactic Network, with awards first awarded in 1999. In 2002 the awards were given their own organization, the Gaylactic Spectrum Awards Foundation. The most recent awards were presented in October 2008 at the Gaylaxicon science fiction convention in Washington, D.C.
The major award categories are for best novel, short fiction, and other works. The winners and short list of recommended nominees are decided by a jury.
Works of any format produced before the awards were first given are eligible to be inducted into the "Hall of Fame", although no work has been inducted since 2003. The list of award winners and Hall of Fame inductees has been called a "who's who of science fiction" by Site: show less

The Gaylactic Spectrum Awards are given to works of science fiction, fantasy and horror that explore LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) topics in a positive way. Established in 1998, the awards were initially presented by the Gaylactic Network, with awards first awarded in 1999. In 2002 the awards were given their own organization, the Gaylactic Spectrum Awards Foundation. The most recent awards were presented in October 2008 at the Gaylaxicon science fiction convention in Washington, D.C.
The major award categories are for best novel, short fiction, and other works. The winners and short list of recommended nominees are decided by a jury.
Works of any format produced before the awards were first given are eligible to be inducted into the "Hall of Fame", although no work has been inducted since 2003. The list of award winners and Hall of Fame inductees has been called a "who's who of science fiction" by Site: (English, Member-written)
