Chef Art Smith and Husband Jesus Salguerio to Climb Kilimanjaro for African GLBT Rights

Celebrity Chef Art Smith will be climbing Kilimanjaro with his husband Jesus Salguerio to bring attention to GLBT rights in Africa! 
Top Chef Master, personal chef to Oprah, and executive chef of Art and Soul DC and Table Fifty-Two in Chicago Art Smith challenged his husband, artist Jesus Salgueiro, to climb Mount Kilimanjaro with him this July in support of GLBT rights in Africa. Smith, best known as the master of fried chicken for his indulgent southern cuisine, dropped 120 pounds last year after a complete diet-and-fitness makeover, and his new healthy comfort food cookbook, entitled Art Smith’s Healthy Comfort: How America’s Favorite Celebrity Chef Got it Together, Lost Weight, and Reclaimed His Health!, hits shelves this May. But Art’s desire to conquer Africa’s tallest peak came from very a different place. Smith and his husband will join a very small club of married gay couples who have climbed the 19,000 foot mountain. Ekta Transglobal salutes this global GLBT leader and will continue to report on this historic event. Please stay tuned to www.EktaTransglobal.org for more.
