Games We Play

Games We Play

Continuing through November 2018 in the Howard Brown Health Clark Waiting Room, Games We Play highlights LGBTQ-themed board and trivia games that began being produced in the 1980s. These include C’est La Vie, a lesbian version of LIFE where the goal is to get to the Lovely Lesbian Retirement Villa, Gay Weekend, where the player goes around the board picking up tricks, Gay Monopoly where players can buy streets in various gay neighborhoods around the county and instead of buying houses or hotels, the players purchase bars and bathhouses. Trivia games include Gay Trivia, D.Y.K.E. (Do You Know Enough) and That’s So Gay.

Gay Games

Gay Games X are being held in Paris, August 4-12, 2018. In commemoration of the games, an exhibit of medals, program books, and pins from the previous nine games will be on display through the end of August.
