New Orleans Pride Weekend is back June 7 through June 9, 2024.

Why it matters: It's time to dust off that rainbow flag (as if it was in storage anyway).

The big picture: New Orleans is consistently considered one of the most LGBTQ+-friendly cities in the country, and that's on full display during Pride.

  • Pride events got started over the weekend, but there are plenty more ways to celebrate or show your allyship with the LGBTQ+ community.

Yes, but: Pride is different from Southern Decadence, another LGBTQ+ celebration that takes place over Labor Day weekend.

Here are some of the noteworthy events this weekend:

๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆ PrideFest from 11am to 5pm Saturday at the Phoenix.

๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆ Black Queer Community Fest from 1pm to 8pm Saturday in Armstrong Park. (Tickets)

๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆ The NOLA Pride Parade, which rolls at 6pm Saturday through the Marigny and French Quarter. (Route)

๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆ Longue Vue Family Equality Day from 10am to 5pm Sunday at the Longue Vue House & Gardens.

Between the lines: Like most American cities, New Orleans doesn't have a lesbian bar.

  • But it does have the pop-up bar Grrlspot, and the organization is hosting parties this weekend.
