Template:Copypaste Andrea Lambert is a queer writer and artist with Schizoaffective disorder.[1]


Born in Los Angeles and educated at Reed College[2] and California Institute of the Arts,[3][4] Lambert was active in the riot grrrl[5] movement of Portland, Oregon.[6]

She curated featherless: a reading series with her domestic partner Katie Jacobson[17] from 2010-2012.[18]

Jacobson proposed to Lambert in the three month period after California Proposition 8 (2008) was overturned[19][20] before a stay was put on gay marriages until 2013. Jacobson committed suicide in 2012.[21] The Katie Jacobson Writer in Residence Program at California Institute of the Arts was begun in her name.[22] Andrea Lambert's thwarted marriage to Katie Jacobson being a casualty of the same-sex marriage struggle is the subject of Lambert's Los Angeles Pride performance.


Jet Set Desolate (Future Fiction London, 2009) is a novel influenced by Linda Yablonsky, Nan Goldin, and Jean Genet.[23] Future Fiction London was an imprint of now defunct Creation Books edited by Hillary Raphael. The mentorship of Matias Viegener and Stephen Barber were vital to this work.
