New Orleans is a city, which embodies the spirit of fun from the colorful Mardi Gras parade to outdoor dining in the French Quarter. For your next trip to the Big Easy, book your stay at gay hotels in New Orleans and join in on the party. The majority of the gay nightlife happens in the historic French Quarter, so spend the evening listening to live Jazz music before dancing the night away in one of the city’s bustling clubs. More gay-friendly nightlife can be found in the suburb of Faubourg Marigny and Bywater, which is just down river of the French Quarter. This neighborhood is known for its European flair and well-preserved architecture. Discover a plethora of shopping and dining options in Marigny as well.
If you’re visiting during the fall, be sure to attend Southern Decadence. Held over Labor Day weekend, the event is referred to as the Gay Mardi Gras and invites over 100,000 people to the streets of New Orleans to celebrate gay culture. Adversely, if you visit during the summer months, New Orleans Gay Pride occurs in June and brings together food, music, dancing, and parades to revel in the South’s LGBT scene.
