A few months ago, Gayborhood bartender Billy Cavallo jetted out to L.A. to fulfill one of his requirements as winner of 2013′s Most Original Stoli Guy competition: to film an Andrew Christian video.

And now, a whole bunch of big-name, nationally-known chefs have gotten together to make a video in support of Gavyn and McKenna. And guess which Philly chef shows up to say a few words in support of gender equality?
