New Orleans Bourbon Pub & Parade Disco Kicks Off
Southern Decadence Weekend with Message of Marriage Equality
One of the World’s Top 10 Gay Bars And Clubs

NEW ORLEANS - On Thursday, September 1, 2011 Bourbon Pub & Parade Disco owner Sandy Sachs (pictured) will host the NOH8 Campaign Photo Shoot, by photographer Adam Bouska and partner Jeff Parshley. A studio will be set up on the second floor of the Pub opening up the opportunity for New Orleans residents and Southern Decadence visitors to join the campaign. Weekend ticket information is available at www.bourbonpub.com

According to Sachs, “The photo shoot will begin at 3PM and will continue until at least 6PM.” Sachs adds, “The Bourbon Pub is proud to support the goal for marriage equality and can think of no better way to kick off the revelry and festivities of Southern Decadence.”

Anyone that would like to join the NOH8 Campaign is asked to wear a plain white shirt to match the look of the signature photos. A solo NOH8 photo will require a fee of $40 per person while any group or couple photos will require a $25 fee per person in the photo. A digital copy of the final selection will be retouched and made available through www.NOH8Campaign.com

Funds raised by the charitable campaign are tax deductible and will be used to continue promoting and raising awareness for marriage equality and anti-discrimination.

Bourbon Pub & Parade-New Orleans was recently ranked as one of the world’s Top 10 Gay Bars and Clubs that “Cannot be Missed,” according to experts at GayTravel.com and is New Orleans’ largest gay & lesbian bar and nightclub. Operating continuously for over 37 years since its doors opened in 1974, it is the epicenter of New Orleans' LGBT community but also welcomes all visitors from all over the world.
