Endless Gaycation – Summer Is Over When We Say It’s Over!
New Orleans, Thursday October 11th-Sunday October 14th
Endless Gaycation (EG) is a four day queer and trans art, music and education festival in New Orleans, Louisiana. Collectively started, EG aims to provide a safe space for all queer and trans/gender non-conforming identities to learn, share, create beauty, create debauchery, dance, fuck, and enjoy ourselves in good company. Through workshops/skill shares, community meals, live music, performance art, dance parties and more we are hoping to attract queers and allies from New Orleans, the Deep South and all over the country to participate in EG.
Each day of EG from 10am-5pm, Diety Arts (830 N. Rampart St) will be hosting us as our headquarters. At headquarters EG organizers and volunteers will be available to answer questions, distributing participant zines with information about EG including schedule of events, sites to see, etc. Headquarters will also host a variety of workshops as well as LoveQuest Inc. an offline blind dating service available each day from 11am-3pm . Each day hosts a variety of free daytime activities open to all, including yoga each morning, workshops, skill shares, film screenings, and community discussions on queer and trans topics. All daytime events are listed on the schedule with times and locations.
EG is ENDLESS but “officially” kicking off Thursday October 11th with a nautical themed dance party, “The Cruise” at 1135 Decatur, featuring local DJs and a stiletto race.
