“TO DECADENCE WITH LOVE, THANKS FOR EVERYTHING!”— Two Drag Queens

“TO DECADENCE WITH LOVE, THANKS FOR EVERYTHING!”

Two Drag Queens

Amos Lassen

 “To Decadence with Love” looks at “the lives of two drag queen extraordinaire, Laveau Contraire and Franky as they prepare for a weekend of New Orleans’ queer celebration of identity, Southern Decadence. While getting a behind-the-scenes view of “gender fuckery art,” we see Southern artists challenging social norms and the boundaries of self-expression all while being a part of a rich community of artists. Both a display of the diversity New Orleans is known for and a lesson on knowing your worth, this film provides a personal perspective not only from the performer’s point of view but also that of the production side as Laveau strives to create more opportunities for BIPOC performance artists. From drag queens to burlesque performers and everything in between, To Decadence with Love, Thanks for Everything! is a lively portrayal of the diversity and utter freedom that comes with being yourself, jam-packed into a weekend in the lives of Decadence performers.” – Elizabeth Myles
