GaYToR

62 M
New Orleans, Louisiana

Retired Drag Queen but that doesn't define me. I did it because I love the art (and money). I'm a gay man from New Orleans, thus the GaY in GaYToR (gator). I'm happily in a 32 year relationship and have no desire to change that. I have been lucky to meet my true soulmate. I still do occasional shows, mostly benefits, because I still enjoy the art, just not the drama and politics.

    And tell them I'm having the same! I've never left the bar... ummm... unsatisfied. From the great bartenders to the patrons there ready for a good time, you will be glad you came. "If these walls could talk" doesn't begin tell the story. See something you like, go for it. If that doesn't work out wait a few minutes and something just as appetizing will pass your way. If there is one rule at Rawhide it should be 'What happens in Rawhide, Stays in Rawhide" but then again, it's so much fun having your friends tell you their version of the things you did for years to come. But if you want to stay up front and have a good stiff drink or 6, that's OK too. Watching the traffic in and out can be a great night of entertainment. Not for couples unless they have a solid relationship and an understanding of what could happen. Closing time? Don't think they know the meaning of the phrase. If you happen to be in the bar during cleaning time, and I have been, just lift your feet or prepare to be hosed down and sanitized like the floors and walls about 6 or 7 AM.

  • For a good time...
    I first came upon this treasure of New Orleans in the early 80's on my first visit to the city. Several years later, 1990, we moved here and Lafitte's was always the first stop of the day or night, being 3 blocks from home. Ah, the memories of nights (or afternoons) at Lafitte's. Always has the best DJ's in town and dancers on the bar for special events, but what day in New Orleans isn't a special event? I've watched the staff come and go but the new ones are as eager to please as the ones they replaced. Aletha is the star of the downstairs bar. She can sling those cocktails 'til the cows come home and keep you in stitches the whole time. She's a damn good singer too. Upstairs... you never know what to expect except it will be a fun time. The balcony is the best in the city and a great place for watching eye candy, day or night, but it gets packed early and all day and night on the big holidays like Mardi Gras and Southern Decadence. I'm not telling my secret for squeezing into my favorite spot at the railing. Upstairs on those biggest holidays is something you have to experience to believe. No room for playing pool then but the pool table is a virtual smorgasbord and it can take quite a while just to walk around it. Cafe Lafitte in Exile may be the oldest gay bar in the city so I guess that makes me older than dirt but that's OK. From the second you walk in and see that welcoming gas flame fire pit, you know you belong.
