The Ferro-Grumley Award is an annual literary award, presented by Publishing Triangle and the Ferro-Grumley Foundation to a book deemed the year's best work of LGBT fiction. The award is presented in memory of writers Robert Ferro and Michael Grumley.

First awarded in 1990, separate awards were presented for gay and lesbian fiction until 2008. In that year, the awards were merged into a single award which may be presented to either a man or a woman.

On two occasions, the award has been won by works that were not conventional literary fiction. In 1994, journalist John Berendt won the award for his non-fiction novel Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, and in 2009, cartoonist Alison Bechdel won the award for her comic strip anthology The Essential Dykes to Watch Out For.
