Electra City is proud to have served on the Gay Easter Parade Advisory Board for the past 18 years to which she adores. Originally from Charleston, SC, she calls New Orleans home. A previous Easter Grand Marshal, Southern Decadence Grand Marshal, and Gay Pride Grand Marshal, Electra has also been bestowed with Queen Amon Ra and is the current reigning Queen Petronius LVIII. Electra has been instrumental in helping many organizations throughout the Gulf South raise additional funds through sponsorships, silent auctions, and fundraising. From Mayors Morial to Nagin to Landrieu, all three have given a proclamation to Electra for her hard work within the City of New Orleans as well as Governor Blanco from the state. She is also married to Tittie Toulouse, her partner of the past 24 years to whom she adores like a bunny as well. As Easter approaches again, she looks forward to the biggest year ever, and looks forward to seeing each of you this year!
