The Big Gay Spelling Bee


The Imperial Sovereign Court of Seattle and the Olympic and Rainier Empire cordially invite you to come relive your worst middle school nightmares with a spelling bee of epic proportions. We're all adults now though, so of COURSE you know there's gonna be booze involved! Come out and buy shots for the contestants - and for yourselves! The drunker we all get, the more funny it will be when someone can't spell "cat."

Buy a shot for one of the contestants to help get them drunk, or (there's a twist!) if someone buys a shot, you can buy it back for yourself or another contestant to protect your friend. Or, if someone misspells a word, buy them a shot to get them a free pass! Or, just buy shots and cocktails for yourself and your friends. Shots for everybody!

We will be fundraising primarily for Camp Ten Trees, a nonprofit camp for queer youth, children of queer families, and allies. So even if you don't drink, please come out and donate to support this incredible organization.

Your hosts:
King of the Seas XXXVII, Adaam King
Queen of the Seas XXXVII, Olivia LaGarce
