Welcome Jazz Fest Revelers
Welcome to Louisiana and its multitude of festivals! New Orleans has just finished the French Quarter Festival and is readying itself for the
onslaught of hundreds of thousands for the '97 Jazz and Heritage Festival. Jazz Fest goers will descend on the city April 25-May 4 for what organizers believe will be the largest fest to date.
After a long day at Jazz Fest, GLBT revelers can flip through the pages of AMBUSH, the most comprehensive guide to "Gay New Orleans," and find exactly what they are looking for. From the largest GLBT ad base in Louisiana, revelers will find the best bars, restaurants and shopping available.
AMBUSH also offers an extensive classified section, as well as a complete guide to special and weekly events. For more info on Jazz Fest, see the XXXpose' section, xxxpose'-24.
Corner Pocket Celebrates 14 Years of Trash
The Queen of the Financial District Ms. Fly proved to the world that "14 years of White Trash" sells! Celebrating the Corner Pocket's 14th anniversary Easter Sunday, Ms. Fly and all her trashy friends put on a drag show extravaganza. Many of the Crescent City's legends hit the stage, and the bar top doing crowd pleaser renditions for the packed house.
KCQ [King Cake Queen] III Smurf started the show promptly at 9pm bringing the lady of the house to the stage. Fly, in trash drag, terrorized the party-goers setting the tone for this night of "trash." Some of the show girls included Teryl-Lynn Foxx; KCQ IV Reba Douglas; KCQ III Smurf, former Southern Decadence Grand Marshal's Olive, Mumbo and Jamie Temple; Miss Thompson; the lovely and vivacious Beefette and Clorox Bleachman.
