  2. What popular gay icon officially “came out” in 2015, making many screen appearances both leading up to and in the wake of the historic Obergefell v. Hodges decision?
  3. “Coulrophagifonzaphobia” is specifically the fear of what?
  4. The chimpanzilla, the orangatibbon, and the babbaque are just three of the many hybrid simian species that have been produced since 1993 at what scientific facility in Texas?
  5. In 1965 the actors playing the title characters of two popular shows switched places for a run of three episodes as a prank. Thanks to makeup, costuming, and cleverly chosen camera angles only a few sharp-eyed viewers ever noticed the stunt. Name both shows.
