Gay Mardi Gras at New Orleans is a gay carnival festival in the famous French Quarter. Mardi Gras day or Fat Tuesday is the traditional day for masking. Costumes can be more than revealing and as it tradition that women show their tits for beans, the (gay) guys show tend to show the content of their underwear. The lower French Quarter is the center for Gay Mardi Gras. This is where you'll find the more extravagant costumes. People come from all over the world just to strut around in costumes of their own design. Of course, going home with a prestigious Bourbon Street Award is often the motivation for their sequined madness. Although parades roll for weeks before Fat Tuesday, on the Day of Days - parades begin early in the morning with the ever popular Zulu and don't stop until the last float passes late in the night. The highlight of the parades is the toast between the King of Carnival - Rex - and the mayor of New Orleans. This is the official proclamation and beginning of Mardi Gras

THE event of the year in Cologne. It sets the whole city completely out of normal order for almost a week, starting on thursday morning and ending at early wednesday morning. The classic bar/street-Karneval is to be found mostly in the gay bars around Rudolfplatz / Schaafenstrasse. Just walk down Staufenstrasse and look around (don't forget that some of the bars are just on one of the sidestreets. Especially Weiberfastnacht (Thursday) has a nice atmosphere as it is very local and people are still full of energy and expectations. Important Tip: Get rid of your coat or winter jacket before you start serious karnevalling! There is a coat check in some of the bars. The big parade on Rosenmontag (Monday) goes all across the city centre. A typical gay meeting point to watch the parade is at Hohe Pforte. But also at Friesenplatz are always lots of gays to be seen in their best costumes.

The world most famous Carnival is creating an exploding vibe along Rio. With different gay club and street parties (Ipanema) and of course the world famous samba parades at the Sambadrome. Sambadrome Samba Parades Make sure you do not miss the big parade at the Sambadrome on Sunday or Monday night. It consists of 700 m stretch of the Marquês de Sapucaí street converted into a permanent parade ground with bleachers built on either side for spectators. Its capacity is 90.000. The performance take many hours, from the evening till early in the next morning. It takes 80 minutes for s Samba school to cross the stadium, it's really spectacular. For tourists some hours is usually enough though. Tickets can be very expensive, few hundred dollars each for good places. Around the stadium you can also buy buy much cheaper tickets at the streets around the stadium for the lower cost grand stands at the beginning or the end of the Sambadrome. This will save you hundreds of dollars. These tickets are in sections with only local people and have a bit more limited view on the samba schools parading by. Also keep in mind you have to be careful in Rio at all times. Ipanema street carnival The Banda Ipanema is the oldest street carnival in town. In carnival weekend, the parade goes by the gay beach on Saturday and Monday, and moves to the Rua Farme de Amoedo (in front of Bofetada) to end in a massive, hot and chaotic street party. This is very different from the highly coordinated Samba schools in the Sambadrome. After the street carnival there is an unofficial street party. Make sure you watch your belongings in the busy crowd.
