They were there to both ask and answer questions.With a table in the campus center full of rainbow stickers and PRIDE bears, many people stopped on Nov. 29 to answer trivia questions from those behind the table about the GLBT community to win a beanie bear.

The table was set up as part of a campus-wide PRIDE Day, sponsored by the One in Ten club.

One in Ten is run by Raymond Boule, president, Laura Olson, vice president, Lesley Hubbard, secretary, and Treasurer Jen Morey.

The club is open to everyone on campus with its motto of “Adam and Eve, Amy and Eve, or Adam and Steve — whatever makes you happy.”

The group meets every Monday night at 7 p.m. in the formal lounge of the campus center.

PRIDE Day was the first event that One in Ten has sponsored in quite some time, club officials said, adding that they were pleased with the turnout.

The day kicked off at noon in the campus center where members of the club took turns asking passers-by trivia questions for prizes.

A sample question included “What does GLBT stand for?” Answer: Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender.

All across campus there were students, gay and straight, who wore rainbow wristbands and stickers and pins supporting gay pride.

At 6 p.m., the event ended in Herrick Auditorium with free pizza, more trivia, and a viewing of the movie “But I’m a Cheerleader.
