New Orleans CVB markets city as gay destination

Thousands of visitors are rolling into New Orleans for Southern Decadence. The festival, which lasts through Labor Day weekend, is based around the French Quarter’s gay bar scene.

Promoters say Decadence will have a $100 million impact on New Orleans.

And while gays can’t get married in Louisiana, that doesn’t mean the city can’t market itself as a gay travel destination. Better yet, even a honeymoon spot!

The New Orleans Convention and Visitor’s Bureau just launched a social media campaign on Facebook to attract gay couples to the city.
