New Orleans, September 12, 2015:  The 44th Annual Southern Decadence celebration of LGBT+ Life, Music and Culture broke all records bringing in over 180,000 participants Labor Day weekend 2015 in New Orleans. With an economic impact of a whopping $216 million, this will be one for the history books. The economic impact may be much more since the spending average per person is based on a very conservative $1,200. The end of summer Circuit weekend is the 5th largest in the city following Mardi Gras, Jazz Fest, Essence Fest and French Quarter Fest.

This year saw another first with five grand marshals leading the festivities including Southern Decadence Grand Marshals XLI Steven Mora, Rip Naquin, Marsha Delain, Misti Ates and Frankie "Fierce" Wingerter. This was also the largest parade in the history of Southern Decadence with over 1,000 participates, 40-50,000 along the parade route. And funds raised minus expenses brought in the most money ever for Southern Decadence Charities at over $30,000 for the LGBT+ Archives Project of Louisiana preserving the past, Louisiana Equality Foundation preserving the present, and PFLAG-New Orleans Scholarship Fund preserving the future. A complete financial report will be released as soon as all monies and expenses have been received and tabulated by New Orleans Southern Decadence Inc.
