Gumbo competition to promote equality

By Jonathan Cole

Tennessee Equality Project (TEP) is proud to host its 3rd Annual Mardi Gras Party and this year’s first Gumbo Tasting Competition on Sunday, February 20. The ingredients of gumbo are as diverse as the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) community, and we will celebrate this in true Mardi Gras style. Funds raised in the competition will benefit TEP to advance and protect the equality of LGBT people and their families in Tennessee.

TEP invites you to become a contestant in the Gumbo Tasting Competition. Organize a gumbo cooking team of your friends or for your organization, club, employee group, business, or faith community. Professional Judge and People’s Choice Awards will be given. You can access competition rules and the entry form at We are looking forward to a competitive field. Don’t miss this opportunity to help the cause for equality and to demonstrate your culinary prowess!

TEP will charge $10/person admissions for tasters, and all are welcome. The event will take place at Hi-Tone (1913 Poplar Avenue) from 4:30-7pm, and a cash bar will be available. Don’t forget to bring your beads and masks; Mardi Gras attire is encouraged!

Laissez les bons temps rouler!
