Celebrate Valentine’s Day, or don’t, with these five lesbian events in New Orleans.
Greetings, From Queer Mountain at The Allways Lounge & Cabaret (2240 St. Claude Ave.) at 7:30 p.m. — Greetings, From Queer Mountain is a monthly LGBTQ storytelling showcase, and this month’s show falls on Valentine’s Day. Naturally, the theme is “secret crushes.” Tickets are $5.
Stem Top Presents: Coochie Crumbs at Voodoo Lounge (718 N. Rampart St.) at 10 p.m. — Stem Top is a new event for “dykes and the people who love them.” Specifically, for femmes and stems. The name is a frankly BRILLIANT wordplay based on stem (stud + femme), tops, and Stove Top. Free.
TGNC Nerds at the Parades at QiQi (1515 Aline St.) at 5 p.m. — Meet up with fellow trans and gender non-conforming folks at Uptown’s only queer bar to watch the parades! QiQi is one block from the parade route (hint: bathrooms). Get there by 5 to watch Sparta, or get there earlier. Passes are $6.
Roommates: A Tender Party for Dykes and the Queers Who Love Them at 2221 St. Claude Ave. at 7 p.m. — A party for dykes/queers to “make new friends, cruise new dates, plan schemes, or build community” for people who “miss bygone dyke bars” and “identify as tired.” There will be a cool IRL personals ad situation happening too. Come early, leave by midnight. Free.
Queer Jai at Swan River Yoga Arabi Community Center (7011 St. Claude Ave. #213) at 1 p.m. — A monthly yoga event for LGBTQIA+ folks. No experience is necessary in this safe, non-judgmental atmosphere — you don’t even need to have your own mat!
