Pioneers Of Gay Carnival: A Conversation With The Legends says
The Louisiana State Museum presents a panel discussion addressing topics of gay culture in New Orleans, gay carnival and the formation of gay krewes, organization of gay groups and AIDS, and gay presence in traditional krewes. Howard Smith, author of the forthcoming book "Unveiling the Muse: Gay Carnival in New Orleans," will moderate the panel which includes those who participated in the development of organized
gay carnival in New Orleans.

Guests include Bill Woolley, Bill Crotty, George Wilson, Mike Moreau, Lou Bernard, Albert Carey, Don Bury, Russell Talluto, Gary Martin, Michael Hickerson, Diane Dimiceli, and Wendell Stipelcovich.

A small selection of the museum’s gay carnival collection will be on display. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own memorabilia of gay carnival for display before and after the panel discussion. The LGBT+ Archives Project of Louisiana will be co-sponsoring this FREE event.
