The ROMAN GAY PRIZE was created in 2013 at the initiative of Éditions Du Frigo. It is a question of rewarding novels (already published and diffused) of original French language and belonging to a literature of male homosexual inspiration.

Since 2015, this literary prize is open to all French-speaking or partly French-speaking countries.
Since 2017, stories and collections of short stories or poems can participate.
Since 2019, biographies, autobiographies and essays.

The Prix Du Roman Gay is not meant to be ghettoized, the fame, gender and sexual orientation of the authors are obviously not taken into account, writers above all.

The well-known Publishers participate, but also the self-published authors, in partnership with publishers / printers or small independent or even alternative publishers, this competition being above all an initiative aiming at promoting their VISIBILITY, of even a coexistence of solidarity, multiple and connected, a way to fight against homophobia.

The jury (in France, Belgium, Canada and Switzerland for the moment) is composed of writers, critics, bloggers, bloggers, readers, booksellers and publishers ... LGBT or not.

The gay theme (in filigree or at the center of the work, a story - or stories because stories and collections of poetry or news can participate - staging homosexual characters, whether or not assumed, in research or in the making whether they live or not their sexuality, first or second roles, endearing or unbearable, fictitious companions, such as the meetings we do or would like to do in life ...) is certainly the selection criterion but it is the qualities literary people who are rewarded.

For this seventh edition of the PRIX DU ROMAN GAY, the number of books proposed (more than 160!), The quality of the titles in the first selection (80, all visible on ) and second (40 nominated), as well as the opening to new literary genres, have imposed the creation of complementary rewards or even doubling them (tied).
For the members of the jury (which must be greatly thanked here), the choices were difficult and much debated. BRAVO so to all!

Note that "the ceremony of the prize list of the ROMAN GAY 2019" will take place at the end of the PARIS GAY LIVING SHOW that will be held the same day Saturday, November 9 between 10am and 18h at the Mairie of the 4th district of PARIS , close to the LGBT Center Paris-ÎdF 63 Rue Beaubourg, 75003 Paris ...
