Dance of Decadence

Photo Recap of 2017 Southern Decadence Parade



Southern Decadence is winding down after a long weekend of glitter, sweat, and costumes both elaborately glamorous and sinfully scantily-clad. Photographer Brandon Robert was on scene to document the celebration's main event, the annual Southern Decadence Parade through the French Quarter.

Southern Decadence is in full blast and the scene at Bourbon and St. Ann is like a neon rainbow on acid. However, there is plenty to do beyond the heart of the Quarter. All over downtown, bars are hosting parties, dancers, and lots of divas. Click on through for today’s list.

Southern Decadence Details



After a decade dominated by storms, Southern Decadence is coming out on top in 2015. Once again, the Quarter will fill with buttocks-less chaps, fishnets, banana sacks, burly bears, lovely ladies, and rainbow clad allies in from out of town to enjoy the country’s largest gay festival. In case, you get overwhelmed by the technicolor fete, NoDef has all the basics for you.

This weekend the rain stoppped and the sun beat down on Bourbon Street for Southern Decadence. The heat index hit a scorching 98 degrees as onlookers scrambled for shade. Still, the mood on the street is one of pride with a rainbow flair. Though public nudity is prohibited, leather daddys and beaus showed off their bodies in a gay celebration that got its start back in 1972.  Amidst a landscape of shootings and just after the ninth anniversary of Katrina, New Orleanians took a minute to pay tribute to the good times, ourselves and what makes us uniquely us -- our decadence.

Decadence goes on parade! This afternoon’s romp through the French Quarter marks the culminating moment of New Orleans’ Labor Day Weekend gay festivities. Maze and Frankie Beverly bring a quiet storm to Lakefront Arena, and the Polyphonic Spree play Southport Hall. Maybe you’re just looking to chill out this evening—we got that covered, too. Check out the events for this long weekend:

Decadance parties on in the Quarter tonight. If you’re venturing downtown, allow us to suggest the LBGTQ punk benefit concert at Siberia or naked karaoke at Allways Lounge. Rebirth Brass Band and Caddywhompus both play Uptown shows tonight. And it’s not too late to catch MidCity Theatre’s mashup of The Big Lebowski and Shakespeare. We’ve also got an early matinee film and late-night comedy. Make the absolute most of your Saturday:
