  • How the past struggles, contributions, tragedies, and victories of the LGBTQ community in New Orleans continue to change and shape the demographics and local economy
  • How to replicate successful elements of programs that LGBTQ community organizations and businesses are developing, using, and refining to deliver quality products, services, and care to patrons and customers
  • Why the tenets of minority sensitivity and community tolerance underpin basic successful planning initiatives where minority neighborhoods exist and flourish


Explore the history, changes, influence, current fabric, and future of the LGBTQ community in New Orleans on foot—from the bars on Bourbon Street and in the French Quarter to services, facilities, and businesses in the adjacent arts district, downtown, and the Marigny neighborhood. Stops include Cafe Laffite in Exile (one of the oldest gay bars in the country), the AIDS Memorial in Washington Square, and the No/AIDS Task Force Community Awareness Network.
