The news we use
by Leslie Robinson - SGN Contributing Writer

I've decided that it's time. Time to test your knowledge of recent GLBT news. Circle the right answer for each multiple-choice question below. The correct answers are provided at the end. No cheating. I'll know.

In Maine's capital of Augusta, so many people wanted to attend the first public hearings on same-sex marriage that officials moved the event from the State House to:
a. a high school gym
b. a movie theater
c. the Augusta Civic Center
d. Massachusetts

Beatrice Arthur, star of Gay fave The Golden Girls, died at age 86. Her character in that show was named:
a. Laverne DeFazio
b. Rhoda Morgenstern
c. Dorothy Zbornak
d. Roseanne Roseannadanna

A newspaper in a homophobic nation outed 50 citizens, publishing their names, occupations, physical descriptions, partners and HIV status. The report exposed the country's "shameless men and unabashed women that have deliberately exported the western evils to our dear and sacred society. They have been influential in spreading the gay and lesbian vices in schools to kill the morals of our lovely kids!!" In which nation did the exposé run?
a. Jamaica
b. Afghanistan
c. Uganda
d. Idaho

During the Miss USA pageant, Miss California said marriage should be between a man and a woman. The furor that followed completely eclipsed the pageant victory of:
a. Miss Delaware
b. Miss Oklahoma
c. Miss North Carolina
d. Mr. North Carolina

Last year former New Jersey Governor James McGreevey and Dina Matos concluded their bitter and melodramatic divorce. But they're back in the news, announcing they plan to share his pension fund. This writer doesn't care:
a. about New Jersey
b. about pension funds
c. if she ever hears about either one of them again
d. if you get this question right

A show called Liberace: The Man, the Music, and the Memories, is slated to open this fall. Where?
a. Branson
b. Duluth
c. Broadway
d. a retirement home near you

A new book questions whether prominent cases of Gays turning straight were fabricated. Whose work, happily cited by reparative therapy supporters, is now in doubt?
a. Alfred Kinsey
b. Shere Hite
c. Masters & Johnson
d. Little Lulu

The answer to every question is "c." How did you do? That badly, eh? Well, later on I'll give you another opportunity. But that's just because I like you.

Leslie Robinson suspects Little Lulu is the answer to many of life's questions. E-mail Leslie at LesRobinsn@aol.com.
