The 4th annual Dykeadence, celebrated over Labor Day weekend in New Orleans, is heating up. The event offers five days of events especially for the lesbian community and is part of Southern Decadence, one of the largest gay festivals in the world.

Organizer Sara Pic said that Dykeadence began because she “saw the deep desire in our community to be a part of Southern Decadence. We were bystanders who simply wanted to get in on the debauchery of Decadence in a safe space for us.”

There was certainly a need. Attendance at the event has quadrupled since its inception in 2009, even admist a tropical storm in 2011.

Dykeadence 2012 features a pool party at a queer country club, a kinky costume party, drag king and queer burlesque shows, and social mixers and other parties. The blow-out last party of the weekend is Fleurt by GrrlSpot, which throws one of the hottest monthly parties for women and friends in New Orleans.

GrrlSpot Director Christine Johnson said, "I'm very excited about Dykeadence this year. We got a lot of great exposure for the women of Southern Decadence last year and we've already grown bigger and better for the upcoming year. GrrlSpot's 'Fleurt' was the largest event of the weekend and the most successful ever for GrrlSpot - this year, we're taking out all the stops."
