It's a long holiday weekend, which means barbecues, frozen cocktails, and — finally — the chance to gather with friends (if you've been vaccinated!). Here's an Insta snap of what some of our favorite LGBTQ chefs, food personalities, restaurateurs, and mixologists are up to.

'Top Chef' alum and now cookbook author Gregory Gourdet is on the publicity circuit, promoting his new book, "Everyone's Table."

Cat Cora gives a shout-out to last year's Women's Empowerment Culinary Internship winner Jessica Hulen.

Melissa King shows off her latest collaboration, MK x Designer's Choice. One hundred percent of proceeds will benefit a charity of choice by collaborator Sunjin Haru Kim.

"Queer Eye" food expert Antoni Porowski is headed on a road trip — why weren't we invited?

Need a quick, Thai-inspired comfort fix? Look no further than Arnold Myint. His latest is a recipe for ginger bone broth.

Newlywed (and "Top Chef All Stars: LA" winner) Kristen Kish is all smiles, celebrating her five-month anniversary.
