If you’ve ever wanted to meet a local LGBTQ celebrity, here’s your chance. Tangoo has teamed up with Reiko Mackenzie, The Food Gays and “The Unstoppable” Conni Smudge to curate the best bars and restaurants during Pride week, and are giving away prizes to go along.
Reiko’s public story started when she sparkled onscreen as a ‘Housewife’ on season one of the ‘Real Housewives of Vancouver.’ Fast Cars. Baking genius. Gluten-free, of course. Luxury. Martial arts badass. Super-fit. Mom of two.
The Food Gays are Jeremy and Adrian, two Vancouver men who love food, photography and social media. The website was launched in 2012, and since then it has become a collection of healthy and delicious recipes, lifestyle finds and restaurant experiences around the city. Follow The Food Gays on Instagram for the most colourful, vibrant food photography around!
Based out of Vancouver, Mz Smudge has been the face of several events and charities, including the North American OutGames, Qmunity, The City of Vancouver, and the Q Hall of Fame Canada to name just a few.
