On Wednesday, October 17th, RA’s Jason and Michaela and Emily Stier from the Doyle Center hosted Queer Quest : LGBTQ+ Game Night. The night was kicked off with Emily challenging the residents to match the LGBTQ+ terms with their correct definition. Some of the terms had similar definitions which made it tricking for the teams, but both teams were successful in matching the terms. After the matching game, residents had time to learn about the Patricia A. Doyle Center for Gender and Sexuality and ask Emily questions to learn about the LGBTQ+ community. After question with Emily, RA’s Jason and Michaela had the residents split into two teams, which were team Pineapple and Team Watermelon and play Queer Quest Jeopardy. The topics for the Jeopardy game ranged from transgender topics, famous people, LGBTQ+ history, advocacy, terminology, and sexualities. Both teams were close for the entire game. In the end, it was Team Watermelon that won the game. Both teams received prizes for their awesome knowledge about the LGBTQ+ community. Are there any questions you have about the LGBTQ+ community?
