Yes, you read that right. GCN’s My Big Fat Gay Pub Quiz is finally back! Assemble your friends and grab a table for a chance to win the greatest LGBTQ+-themed quiz in all the land.

For many years, My Big Fat Gay Pub Quiz has been a fun way to raise funds for Ireland’s free LGBTQ+ press and registered charity, GCN, and now it’s finally time to bring it back to you all. Get your calendar and save the date, because on April 11, GCN is taking over Street 66 on Parliament Street, Dublin, to grill you all with our own brand of camp questions.

And we’re certainly coming back with a bang, as the event will be hosted by the most hilarious duo in town: The Wild Geeze.

Our two gorgeous hostesses will put your quizzy skills to the test with questions on categories covering music, sports, films & TV, Irish history and much more – all with a rainbow twist! Honestly, we wouldn’t be Ireland’s LGBTQ+ press if we didn’t take this chance to challenge our readers on all things queer.

If you think you’ve got what it takes to win the queerest pub quiz in town, grab your friends, form teams of four and get your hands on some tickets here. And, while we all know that the glory and bragging rights would be more than enough satisfaction for the winners, that’s certainly not all they’re going to get.

We have an incredible list of prizes waiting for you, including tickets to see Troye Sivan live at the 3Arena and a variety of fantastic vouchers and hampers. What’s more, the winning team will nab themselves weekend passes to the legendary Mother Pride Block Party.

And if, for some reason, you’re not feeling particularly quizzical on the night but would still like a chance to get your hands on some amazing prizes, don’t despair! We’ve planned a gorgeous raffle full of spectacular items for our lovely quiz-goers to take home.

Support GCN

GCN has been a vital, free-of-charge information service for Ireland’s LGBTQ+ community since 1988.

During this global COVID pandemic, we like many other organisations have been impacted greatly in the way we can do business and produce. This means a temporary pause to our print publication and live events and so now more than ever we need your help to continue providing this community resource digitally.

GCN is a registered charity with a not-for-profit business model and we need your support. If you value having an independent LGBTQ+ media in Ireland, you can help from as little as €1.99 per month. Support Ireland’s free, independent LGBTQ+ media.
