For 300 years New Orleans has been a mecca for everything decadent and alive. A place where music, art, history, food, and people of different ethnicities, nationalities and sexual orientation mix and mingle like the colors of a Michalopoulos painting. Yet, history and art aren’t the only reasons why New Orleans is the number 1 southern destination for LGBTQ’s in the U.S. The other reason is the nightlife. After all, here, every night is a party regardless of whether it’s Mardi Gras, Jazz Fest, Halloween or a regular Tuesday.
