Queer Soup Night, a Brooklyn-born community initiative aiming at connecting queer folks and allies over food and friendship, is coming to Atlanta on Sunday, March 13. Benefitting Southern Fried Queer Pride (SFQP), the donation-based event will offer queer and allied Southerners an evening of nourishing food, great company, and the opportunity to learn about ways to support SFQP.
Queer Soup Night will be help from 5 to 7pm at the Shed at Ponce City Market and will feature three soups from local queer chefs. Chef Luis Martinez of My Abuela’s Food will be serving a vegan Puerto Rican “Sancocho,” Chef Rio Bacerra of Gorditas ATL will serve a Mexican “Pozole Blanco,” and Chef Carla Fears of Gourmet Street Foods will be serving “Southern Black Girls Bowl,” a roasted butternut squash soup.
All are welcome, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, race, ethnicity, and class. With a suggested donation of $10 to $20, guests are invited to pair their soup with Local Grain sourdough bread donated by Evergreen Butcher. Drinks from King of Pops’ Getaway Bar and desserts from Mother Brother ATL will also be available for purchase. All supplies were provided courtesy of Fat Kid Gastronomy, and all leftovers will be donated to mutual aid project Free99Fridge.
