Varla Jean Merman Goes on a Swamp Tour

This series hosted by Varla Jean Merman (in and out of drag), presents a wide variety of folks along the LGTBQ spectrum who call New Orleans home. Through interviews and funny adventures, we’ll follow Jeff, Varla and several locals to gain a deeper insight into who they are, and why they love New Orleans.

On the third episode of this series, Varla meets up with National Audubon Society communications director Jacques Hebert who shares with us everything he loves about New Orleans, especially his love for outdoors activities. Along the journey, they make stops at Crescent Park, a good ole Louisiana bayou, Morning Call, and most importantly Jean Lafitte Park for an unforgettable swamp tour. Follow along and share your story with #OneTimeInNola.
