Celebrate Pride Month at Union County’s LGBTQ Trivia Night, June 16

The Union County Commissioner Board invites trivia fans to test their knowledge and join in celebrating Pride Month with an evening of fun at LGBTQ Trivia Night, taking place on Tuesday, June 16, 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., at The Tavern at Union County’s Ash Brook Golf Course, 1210 Raritan Road in Scotch Plains.

Bring your best LGBTQ+ history and pop culture knowledge to LGBTQ Trivia Night. Picture rounds, music rounds, plenty of random facts and interesting tidbits are all included.  Participants can enjoy showing off what they know or just being the one with a lucky guess.

The event is free but individual or team pre-registration is required online at unioncountynj.wufoo.com.

“Trivia Night is a celebratory brain-teaser that shines new light on the people, history and culture of the LGBTQ+ community, and we are very proud to host the event at Union County’s Ash Brook public golf course,” said Union County Commissioner Chair Rebecca L. Williams.

“Trivia Night is a fun and enlightening way to enjoy an evening out and join in our series of Pride Month programs,” said Commissioner Alexander Mirabella, who is the Board’s liaison to the Office of LGBTQ Affairs.
