Virtual LGBT Trivia Night & Fundraiser
20210609 | 6:30PM to 7:30PM
** suggested $5 minimum donation; thank you for supporting our fundraiser! **
Broadway babies, cinephiles and art connoisseurs, test your knowledge of the LGBT community’s impact and legacy in American arts and culture at our first ever VIRTUAL TRIVIA NIGHT and fundraiser.
Join us Wednesday, June 9th, at 6:30PM EST with historian (and bona fide British pub quiz host!) George Benson for 5 rounds — equal parts challenging and amusing — of trivia informed by the Project’s ever-increasing directory of NYC’s LGBT historic sites. Trivia will be hosted on Zoom.
GRAND PRIZE (in addition to bragging rights): an original, authenticated print of the pivotal moment in 1966 that became known as the “Sip-In” at Julius’ Bar in Greenwich Village. Taken by legendary Village Voice photographer Fred W. McDarrah, the image captures the exact moment when Mattachine Society activists John Timmons, Dick Leitsch, Craig Rodwell, and Randy Wicker were denied service at Julius’ after informing the bartender of their sexual orientation. The photograph is printed from the original negative and stamped with official authorization by the Estate of Fred W. McDarrah, and are signed by two “Sip-In” participants: the late Dick Leitsch (1935-2018) and Randy Wicker (b. 1938).
This event is made possible with generous support from American Express, Consolidated Edison, and NYC & Company Foundation.
