New Orleans Pride, 2019

While the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence accept members of any orientation, Gay Pride always figures prominently in our social calendar. This year was no exception. We had a dunk tank for a second year, and it was more popular this time around than it was last year. The people who sat in the tank to be dunked included members of the Big Easy Sisters, members of NOLA PAH, Mr Louisiana Leather, and a volunteer who had her own booth, but really wanted to get dunked. And who could blame her? Temperatures hovered above 100 degrees, and it was stinkin' hot.
