Event description

Description

The Capital Quiz ran 1981 – 2009, sponsored first by ‘Capital Gay’, the weekly free paper, and then by Central Station, the gay bar at Kings Cross. In it, teams from all across London (often more than thirty of them), competed for a cup, and a cash prize. Each team consisted of three people, and either represented a group or a pub, or was just put together by a group of friends. Homo Promos, which was a co-organiser of the Quiz for its last ten years, is now reviving the tradition, but compressing it into a single evening. In part one there will be a paper quiz of six rounds; in part two, the top two teams will fight it out onstage with a University-Challenge-style finale, complete with bells and buzzers. All questions will be LGBT-related in some way or another.

Entries are invited from any social or political group or group of friends from anywhere in London. Teams should a) consist of three people, (b) have a team name, and (x) have at least one LGBT+ member. They should also not be shy about appearing onstage if they reach the finale. Entries in advance to homopromos@gmail.com, please, before June 25th.

There are two prizes of chocolates for the finalists, in addition to the Cup (pictured).
