That's So Gay! trivia game available
2013-12-10

CHICAGO—That's So Gay! A Game of LGBTQ Discovery, a new trivia game, is available in time for the holidays. Featuring more than 2,400 questions of LGBTQ history and current events, the game can be played by two or more people and is ideal for parties and social events.

The phrase "That's so gay!" has been used mostly in a negative context for decades. Some people use it as a way to attack or vilify the community, and others use it in fun, not realizing the damage it can do. As with the reclaiming of negative words and phrases such as "queer," this game seeks to turn "That's so gay!" into a positive opportunity to educate LGBTQs and allies, and even those people who use the phrase as an attack.

Produced by Windy City Times publisher Tracy Baim, there are a limited number of copies of That's So Gay! available at Chicago's Women & Children First Bookstore and Gaymart. The bookstore will take phone and online orders, which can also be made through thatssogaygame.com .

The game will be made available to student and adults LGBTQ groups, including GSAs, as a fundraising tool, where they can keep $5 for every game sold.

"Words can be a tool of our enemies, or can empower us in our work," said Baim. "This game hopes to break down stereotypes while having some fun with our LGBTQ history. There are the well-known celebrities and media sensations, but also obscure authors, scientists, athletes and pioneers. The scope of the game goes back thousands of years and across multiple continents, all with more than 2,400 questions that will tease you, taunt you, and treat you to some amazing facts."

The game features questions in six categories, plus wild card questions. Each category coincides with a color of the rainbow flag—you get a question right, you get that color chip, and you build a rainbow flag to win the game. The categories are:

— RED: Celebrities, Athletes and Historical Figures

— ORANGE: Politics, Protest and the Courts

— YELLOW: Movies, Television and Media

— GREEN: Music, Theater and Dance

— BLUE: Literature, Art, Fashion and Culture

— PURPLE: Science, Spirituality, Health and Grab Bag

See www.facebook.com/ThatsSoGayGame for details.

For info on bulk purchases and fundraising opportunities, email: editor@windycitymediagroup.com or call 773-387-2394.

That's So Gay! can be ordered through thatssogaygame.com and on www.amazon.com/dp/B00GXKD13E/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_dp_UDlQsb1WV1DR2PHN .
