Farewell to decadence
The Labor Day weekend is the customary date for the Southern Decadence Festival, a celebration of mostly-male gay culture in the wickedness of New Orleans.
Famously, in 2005, the festival was interrupted by bad weather.
This year, weather affected the festival, too, but not as severely as Hurricane Katrina. But despite the fact that there were fierce thunderstorms during the Sunday parade, these parade-goers were ready to party.
Now we're on the far side of the Labor Day weekend, and thoughts are turning to autumn, school, and getting back to business. Farewell to the decadence and languor of summer! Hello to hard work!
