Each summer, the evening before the Boston Pride Parade, the Boston Dyke March celebrates all that is women, empowerment, inspiration, and anything else to keep feminine spirits high. Learn what the organizers have to say about this fun event!
We met Tasha at a clothing store in the French Quarter. We had no idea what we were going to interview her about, but wanted to profile a college student in New Orleans. We hope you’re as blown away by Tasha as we were by her intellect and courage!
We had the opportunity to meet and interview one of the founding members of Krewe of Muses, one of the very few all-female New Orleans Mardi Gras organizations. We met up with them only a few weeks before Mardi Gras and got to interview Virginia in her “Glitterage” in the middle of a glitter party.
