That’s SO GAY – Game

 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.
