There's a part of Bourbon Street, at St. Ann Street, that turns into what's known as the 'gay section' of the French Quarter in New Orleans.  It's always bustling with fun music, colorful outfits and some of the most free spirited people in the world.  Tonight, the party stopped.

Sunday afternoon in the LGBT section of the Quarter, kicks off what is known as 'Tea'.  That's when people of all ages and race jump from gay bar to gay bar well into the night enjoying retro music, drag shows and the sites.  It is NEVER quiet.  Tonight, the party stopped cold in respect of the lives lost in Orlando, Florida.
