This month’s STL Foodies series features several LGBTers and allies whom are all making their VOICES heard in the culinary industry. Raj Tailor explores the creative drive that makes our culinary community so fun.




Also we are “Dishin’ with Dieta Pepsi” Everyone knows about the spicy love affair between Dieta and her “WANGS!” Now, you too can make them and experience the torrid romance. Along with her “Wangs”, Dieta has jotted down a few of her other favorite recipes. Enjoy!


Las Vegas may be America’s “Sin City” but for years our local LGBT community has been proud to call our very own East St. Louis the wild hot spot of the Midwest. Colin Murphy’s “1 out of 10” explores our party history across the river.


The Holi“GAYS” are here and we are gearing up for a festive and exciting season. Did you know that on Friday nights at CWE’s Lemon Spalon they have a great program called “Sips and Style?” For $35 you can pop in and get 2 cocktails while having your hair blown out or styled before all of those holiday parties. Indeed, you are sure to be styling and profiling. Book your reservation today 314.367.7911. I hope you enjoy this culinary experience and until next month, EAT DRINK AND BE…GAY!




This month Vital VOICE teamed up with famed photographer Suzy Gorman and celebrity food stylist/designer Robert Schaefer from Steven Becker Fine Dining to create this amazing cover featuring Dieta Pepsi.
