New Orleans is a city of paradoxes. One of the strangest has to do with LGBT+ history. In a city in love with its history, a city which inspires books on the most obscure historical topics on a monthly basis, much of the city’s LGBT+ history remains in the closet. Which is odd, given how […]

Meet VINSANTOS: Owner and Director of Funeral Gallery on Royal St. in the French Quarter, and the Head Mister-ess of the New Orleans Drag Workshop.
