Gay Pride has a long history in New Orleans. It began in 1971 with a “Gay In” picnic in City Park. In 1978, it became an established annual event known as “Gay Pride”. The first Gay Pride Parade took place in 1980.

Over the years, Gay Pride New Orleans has seen many changes. It has moved from June to the fall and back to June again. It has been in Washington Square, then Armstrong Park, and then it moved back to Washington Square. It will undoubtedly see more change in the future, but it will always take place.

The complete schedule of New Orleans Gay Pride has yet to be released. Visit Gay Pride New Orleans for up-to-date information.

In the meantime, make reservations in a New Orleans Bed and Breakfast.

Essence is defined as “the intrinsic nature of something” and “the most important ingredient; the crucial element”. Isn’t it time you discovered the essence of New Orleans?

The Essence Music Festival is the event in the United States that showcases African American musicians and talent. Some of the biggest names in the industry will be in New Orleans for Essence. Aretha Franklin, Fantasia, The Stylistics, and Charlie Wilson are just the beginning of the list.

During the festival, New Orleans’ Central Business District will be transformed into a fabulous outdoor marketplace. Writers and artists will be there, as will chefs. It would be wise to bring your appetite. This is a unique opportunity to see a wide sampling of the culture and talent of the African Diaspora in one place.

The 2012 Essence Music Festival takes place at the New Orleans Mercedes-Benz Superdome on July 6-8. That may seem like a long time from today, but it will be here sooner than you think. It’s worth preparing now: make travel plans, find a New Orleans Bed and Breakfast, and get your tickets to the Essence Music Festival.

For a complete lineup and tickets, please visit Essence Festival.
