“Mardi Gras Day was the only opportunity for gay people to legally gather in public…Mardi Gras was the only time by law in New Orleans you could cross-dress. Any other time you were subject to arrest…You had to be out of drag at dark and you still had to have on one piece of man’s clothing.”
—from The Sons of Tennessee Williams (dir. Tim Wolff, 2010)
Listen, there’s a hell of a good universe next door, let’s go.
