Sizzling in September: Vegas, New Orleans, and Atlantic City Host LGBT Events
LAS VEGAS, Nevada - While Las Vegas has been ranked as one of the top vacation spots for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered (LGBT) travelers, Caesars Entertainment is uniquely positioned to provide fun and exciting experiences at its resorts across the country.
During September, Caesars has created an inclusive three-city event tour that will kick-off in New Orleans, continue to Las Vegas and wrap in Atlantic City. The gaming and entertainment company will roll out the rainbow carpets and demonstrate pride from coast to coast, inviting everyone to Come Out with Caesars Entertainment this September.
Harrah’s New Orleans will kick-off the celebration this Labor Day weekend with the largest gay event in New Orleans, Southern Decadence, by hosting the Grand Marshall’s dinner and official kick-off extravaganza block party on September 1. Voted as Out Magazine’s Hottest DJ in 2007, Hit sensation DJ Hector Fonseca will bring his world-renowned dance beats for a guaranteed good time.
In addition, Harrah’s New Orleans is the leading sponsor of Envy, a VIP experience in the heart of the action, and will march through the famed French Quarter in the Decadence parade located in the "Gay Capital of the South."
