LGBT Mastermind 2019

Spoiler Alert!  If you are planning on listening to the LGBT Mastermind quiz at 5pm this afternoon and don’t want to know who won – stop reading now.

There has been a wide programme of events this February in York to celebrate lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender history organised by York LGBT History Month, and on Thursday night last week it was marked by LGBT Mastermind. Hosted at the Corner Pin on Tanner Row, the event was based on the television programme ‘Mastermind’ and saw six contenders competing to answer the most LGBT-related general knowledge questions within two minutes. With Lisa Kelly asking the questions and Jake keeping time and score, the contenders responded to a wide range of cultural and socio-political questions, the answers to which were often rather surprising and indeed fascinating.

The event began with an exceedingly keen group of contenders and supporters singing, until everyone curbed their enthusiasm to make way for the event. The first contender, last year’s champion Annis, was up! The whole thing had to be restarted as the mood lighting – albeit magical and romantic – was slightly too dim. With this issue rectified, it was all go. Questions were asked and answered relating to all manner of things (I personally learned a lot!), such as the Stonewall Campaign, Sir Ian McKellen’s knighthood, statues of Alan Turing, York Pride, Sappho… The list goes on. There were two rounds with an interval of notable camaraderie and conviviality! Annis, CJ (who guessed LGSM to stand for Lesbian and Gay SadoMasochists), Dale, Ian, Martin, and Rebecca all had the chance of a further two minutes in the second round to cash in some more points. At the reckoning, it turned out that Annis had been knocked from the champion spot and been usurped by Ian, who emerged as victor with 15 points.

Overall, the event proved to be an immense success, with much laughter and celebration as well as discussion of serious matters concerning LGBT history which the event aimed to address. I had some very illuminating conversation with participants and supporters alike both in the interval and after the event when the group remained for a while for a jovial chat. Congratulations to Ian, the LGBT Mastermind 2019 champion!
