The 2nd annual Gumbo Contest of the Tennessee Equality Project was held Sunday night at Bridges downtown, and, like last year’s event, it could boast a jampacked room and a diverse, bipartisan attendance. This year there were special honors given to four “Champions of Equality.”

The recipients were: Chef Kelly English, City Councilwoman Janis Fullilove, Former City Counciman and state Senator Lee Harris, and Sheriff Bill Oldham.
