We Host Parties with a Purpose


The Friday Night Before Mardi Gras’ Masquerade Ball – and the parties that lead up to it – celebrate the best traditions of New Orleans with costumes, cocktails and revelry.  

Founded in 1999 (but with roots that go back to the mid-1980s), our organization is dedicated to the health and well-being of the LGBT community in Greater New Orleans. We do this by raising funds and awareness for non-profits focused on engagement, education, healthcare and support.
