Feeling a little antsy in your pantsy? Lookin’ at other hashers a little, ya know, sideways? It’s probably (definitely) all those chemicals Obama put in our water. It’s okay, though: you’re in good company. Succumb to the beauty of Pride as your queer hares (and one ally, shout out to Cooch for keepin’ it real and resisting the gay persuasion, ya heard) guide you through some of the most iconic queer and trans locations in our city. During this trail you will walk or run past 20 important moments in the fight for LGBTQ+ liberation in New Orleans. From memorials to gay bars, former rally sites to the birthplace of the NO/AIDS Taskforce, we promise to make your conversion to perversion as sweet as possible.
Additionally, to commemorate Pride, we’ve made Voodoo Pride stickers! They’re $2 a piece and all proceeds go towards House of Tulip, a nonprofit organization providing stable housing for trans/gnc individuals currently experiencing homelessness. (If you can’t make it to trail but still want to support our efforts, please venmo Mr. hEd $2.50 and she’ll mail your sticker to you!)
Bring: $0 (or $2 to buy a dope ass Voodoo Pride Sticker!); 6-pack and a cooler with ice (unless you like hot beer then you nasty), whistle, flashlight
