Win a Chance to Be Kathy Griffin’s Gay for a Day


Feel like being Kathy Griffin‘s Gay For A Day? Then listen up! Queerty and Ms. Griffin have teamed up to offer one lucky winner (and a guest) a chance to fly to Las Vegas, be put up at the Mandalay Bay (with comp’d food!), and then hit up Madame Tussuads Las Vegas for the grand unveiling of a certain D-lister’s wax figure, where you’ll interview Kathy on the red carpet (for Queerty!) and then score tickets to her show the next day.

Yes, kids, it’s your chance to be Kathy’s token gay.

Are you free from July 2-4? Then we’ve only got one small request to enter the contest: You must send Queerty a tweet of your favorite Kathy quip!

It can be a punchline, a link to a YouTube video of her doing stand-up, a description of your favorite scene from My Life On The D-List, or just a personal message to Kathy — but keep it short, because you’ve only got 140 characters to enter via Twitter.

How to enter? Use the app above, or just add @queerty to your Twitter friends and send us a message. Be sure to include the hashtag #kathyvegas in your tweet so we know you’re entering the contest.

An example entry looks like this:

@queerty #kathyvegas

You have until June 24 (midnight of June 23) to tweet us, and then we’ll choose our favorite entry and get you on a flight to Vegas! (Note: We will contact the winner via direct message on Twitter to get contact details, so please ensure DM is enabled. If you do not respond within a reasonable amount of time, we reserve the right to choose a new winner.)


Here’s what you’re playing for in the Kathy Griffin’s Gay For a Day contest:

-Airfare for 2 to Las Vegas (Arrive July 2nd, depart July 4th)
-Hotel for 2 to Las Vegas (Mandalay Bay for the nights of July 2nd and July 3rd)

Feel free to use the widget above to vote for your favorite entries. The winner will be picked by Queerty.

Here’s the fine print: You must be at least 21 years old. You must be departing from the continental U.S. You must agree to sign a media release form granting us (and Kathy) to use footage of you from the red carpet interview. And you must follow @queerty on Twitter for your contest entry to be valid, so please add us to your list of followers before entering! No purchase necessary, and all that jazz.

So what are you waiting for?!
