Bechdel received the Lambda Literary Foundation's Trustee Award for Exellence in Literature, while Georges was the first winner of a LGBT Graphic Novel category after it was added this year. Bechdel won for I believe her body of work; Georges won for her Houghton Mifflin Harcourt effort Calling Dr. Laura. She reacted here.
