The New Orleans LGBT Hospitality Alliance (NOLHA) is convened under the leadership of the New Orleans Tourism Marketing Corporation (NOTMC) and New Orleans & Company. We were assembled in an effort to unite local LGBT community leaders and allies, grow attendance for local events, and increase LGBT visitation to New Orleans. We hold quarterly meetings to discuss important topics, foster community outreach, and expand the influence of our LGBT community.
NOLHA is a supportive organization, designed to foster a partnership between LGBT events and the hospitality industry to increase LGBT visibility. Under the joint efforts of all key LGBT figures and allies, this group acts as a platform that helps create a city-wide LGBT calendar – through which, each respective organization will support and foster the growth of others.
Through a series of Tourism Universities and other outlets, NOLHA helps the New Orleans hospitality industry prove that our city is the most welcoming city for all.
We meet quarterly for updates on our progress and continued work. Members of NOTMC and the NOCVB will use the group’s recommendations as a basis for developing content and strategy related to New Orleans’ marketing efforts.
