::::: Vegan + Goth = VOTH :::::

Queer Goth Nigerian-American model, goth musician, activist (animal/human/LGBTQ+), health (physical and mental) advocate, celeb + private chef, CEO/Founder of Goth In The Raw and the vegan beauty brands, Haus of Abali Beauty and Nnaus Feratu Cosmetics - Countess Nnaus A.O. Feratu (they/them/theirs), has been a proud Goth and vegan of 24+ years, they love merging the beauty of the Gothic subculture that I have been one with at a young age and the beauty of my Nigerian heritage into the dishes that I create - vegan dishes with a dark aesthetic. Each creation is an extension and representation of who they are and shows that vegans of all kinds exist.  Veganism is inclusive, not exclusive. 

Since their debut in 2015, they have built up a massive fanbase through their dark creations that have resulted in features in Creative Loafing ATL, Vice Media, PETA, Gothic Beauty, Vegan Life Magazine and collaborations/partnership with United Artist Releasing/MGM’s “The Addams Family” Movie (10.2019) and Netflix’s “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: Chapter 3” (1.2020).

A fan and attendee at many VegFest, they longed to create something where fellow vegans within the dark/alt/goth subcultures of ALL races/genders could come together and enjoy food, wares and music as black as one's soul. Years in the making - it is now a reality.

VOTH brings the worlds of plant-based foods, the darkness/aesthetic and music to the masses for an amazing event that will let all be one with the creatures of the night who do not feast on their animal friends.
