Additional Information

The history of the French Quarter is more LGBTQ than people know! It’s also a very emotional one with many ups and downs. Because of this we limit the tour to just 9 guests so that you can comfortably get to know your guide and ask questions!
The LGBT Queer History walking tour delves deep into the complicated past of gay New Orleans. You learn about the struggles faced by gay community members over the decades, such as brutal beatings, disowned sons and daughters, and the Upstairs Lounge fire that tragically killed over 30 people.
But with each struggle, you hear about hope. From gay Mardi Gras krewes to supportive clergy members to the creation of gay rights political groups, New Orleans now lets “you be you,” in all your glory!

American Townhouse

Worthwhile, interesting and a different perspective - Our guide Ty was very knowledgeable and was able to provide a history lesson with the skill of a good storyteller. We really enjoyed their company too.
