10 fabulously queer events & places to celebrate the New Orleans Tricentennial
Washington Square Park
Just footsteps away from Frenchman Street, this charming green space is a popular place for locals to bring their dogs, toss Frisbees and picnic. There’s also a moving HIV/AIDS memorial located on the northern end of the park. The glass and steel statue was designed by sculptor Tim Tate. Each December, the Office of Health Policy and AIDS Funding hosts a wreath laying ceremony in the park to honor those lost.
