Overview

In Exile: The History and Lore Surrounding New Orleans Gay Culture and Its Oldest Gay Bar is the first comprehensive treatment of the history of gay New Orleans drawn primarily on the recollections of dozens of gay men and women and providing a fascinating narrative of how gay New Orleans evolved throughout the twentieth century.

Learn the incredible and previously unrecognized contributions gay people have made to New Orleans culture. Learn how homophobia led to the founding of the nation’s oldest gay bar, the origins of gay Carnival culture, and how Southern Decadence, one of the largest gay festivals in the world, began as an impromptu house party by a handful of bored college students.

Written with graceful insight and thoughtful perception, In Exile is a beautiful meditation on the intersection of place and identity.

Editorial Reviews

Amos Lassen
"I was home at Lafitte’s as so many of us were and for me it is a place that holds many good memories. I often wondered why no one wrote a book about it and now someone has and it is quite a read. . . This is a real look at gay New Orleans and the role that one bar has played and it is a wonderful read. Interestingly enough there has not been much written about gay New Orleans yet it is one of the places many think of when they think about gay life in America."
Vinton Rafe McCabe
"So much is reported, so many legends examined, memories shared and tall tales told, that, after a while, the reader begins to feel that he knows the Café Lafitte so well that if he were to walk into the bar himself one day it would prove itself to be a ‘place where everybody knows your name.’”
