I live in the French Quarter and love sharing my neighborhood with visitors! I've written three books about New Orleans history (In Exile: The History and Lore Surrounding New Orleans Gay Culture And Its Oldest Gay Bar, Treasures of the Vieux Carre, and Southern Decadence in New Orleans). I also write a history column for Ambush Magazine called "Moments in Gay New Orleans History." In addition, I teach Professional Tour-Guiding and French Quarter History at Loyola University. I'm also proud to serve as President of the LGBT+ Archives Project of Louisiana.
