The Capital Quiz
The Capital Quiz was an annual knock-out quiz competition held January to March and open to teams of three lesbian gay bisexual and transgender people. It was organised by LMG and raised money for charity; for 2008 our choice was The Food Chain.
In 2008 under new rules 13 teams entered, while others could just turn up on the night. Many pubs entered teams, as did gay groups. But it could just as easily be an informal group of friends. Other people who weren’t in teams could come along, take part in a Table Quiz, and generally enjoy the show.
The Quiz was originally sponsored by the late, much-lamented weekly gay free-sheet, Capital Gay. When the paper folded, the quiz was taken on first by the Central Station pub and then by The Black Cap in Camden Town. In 2008 it was back at Central Station. The first and second prizes were £100 and £75, while the third and fourth teams picked up £50 and £25 respectively.
Unfortunately owing to illness and other factors, it has not been possible to arrange a Quiz since 2008.
