A tradition since 1949, the Fat Monday Luncheon is the oldest organized activity in all of Louisiana LGBT history. The luncheon began when Bob Demmons crowned one of his out-of-town Mardi Gras guests “Queen of the luncheon” during a small gathering at Brennan’s restaurant. After the group grew too large for Brennan’s, the organizers approached Arnaud’s restaurant and were welcomed with open arms. Each year, two queens are crowned: one from out of town and one from New Orleans. In addition, a number of other participants are singled out for various “awards.”
