Project Lazarus is a clinical program in the greater New Orleans area that provides support and transitional living facilities for those with HIV/AIDS. One of the most vital roles in the history of the project is Halloween New Orleans, which is one of the ultimate, can’t-miss parties every year.
Starting out in 1983, Halloween New Orleans established itself as a nonprofit organization whose sole purpose was to raise funds in support of Project Lazarus’ mission. The jam-packed weekend includes the famous Lazarus Ball, the main costume party on Saturday night, followed by a Sunday brunch in the French Quarter.
What started as a dinner party a few friends put together to honor loved ones who have died from AIDS has turned into the single largest cumulative donor to Project Lazarus!
This year, the slayfest was bigger than ever to celebrate its 40th year. The 40th-anniversary party kicked off this past weekend before the XLR8 dance party hosted the annual costume contest on Saturday night.
