Posted By on Thu, Feb 7, 2013 at 6:25 PM

The annual Tennessee Equality Project Gumbo Contest and Mardi Gras Celebration will be held this Sunday, February 10th from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Earnestine & Hazel's.

The $10 entry fee makes you a judge in the People's Choice contest. You can sample gumbo from each of the 13 teams and vote for your favorite. A panel of judges will also rate the gumbos.

Judges this year include Patricio Gonzalez of Youth for Youth, Memphis City Councilman Lee Harris, Memphis-Shelby County School Board Commissioner Tomeka Hart, Cafe 1912 owner Glenn Hayes, and Rizzo's Diner chef/owner Michael Patrick.

Funds raised in the competition benefit Tennessee Equality Project's work to advance and protect the equality of LGBT people and their families in Tennessee.

Full disclosure: I'm entering my vegan tempeh gumbo in the contest. It's probably unethical for me to be writing about this, but hey it's all for a good cause.
