Alana McMillan and Sabrina Chen are the co-founders of JaynesBeard, a monthly, private supper club for lesbian and queer women in New York City. JaynesBeard events range from cocktail parties to multi-course plated meals (and everything in between). These events feature up-and-coming, mostly queer and female chefs and bartenders. Recently they hosted an event with Top Chef  Season 10 winner, Kristen Kish, as the guest chef.

After discovering a shared passion for exploring new foods, they decided to create an ideal community where someone could truly “nerd out” over food, their way.  But JaynesBeard has turned into so much more. In short, JaynesBeard aims to be at the intersection of culinary and queer.
