Even though our city is on quarantine, the LGBT community has found a way to keep us entertained. New Orleans has been a city alive with a culture that can’t be locked behind a door. Music, drag performances, and fundraisers are just a socially distant or cyber click away from you. Hopefully, these hot virtual happenings (both locally and nationally) will give you lots of entertainment for the rest of this week.
If you have a cyber event you would like to promote, please send the information to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
