The Arch and Bruce Brown Foundation - Awards yearly grants to writers in three rotating disciplines: Theatre, Full-length Fiction, and Short Stories. All works submitted must present the gay and lesbian lifestyle in a positive manner and be based on, or inspired by, a historic person, culture, event, or work of art. Writing contests close on November 30th of each year. Grants are $1000 and are not limited to a single winner. The Foundation also offers grants (usually of $1000) to production companies to offset expenses in producing gay-positive theatrical works based on history.
