The forgotten inferno: Tinderbox and the Up Stairs Lounge fire

The 1973 French Quarter fire is the subject of a new book Earlier this month, Mayor LaToya Cantrell hoisted a rainbow flag at the entrance to New Orleans City Hall, where it would hang next to the city, state and American flags throughout Pride Month. ??A municipal display of LGBT support would have been unlikely a generation ago, but to the patrons of the Up Stairs Lounge, a gay bar on the second floor of a building at the corner of Chartres and Iberville streets in the 1970s, it would have been impossible to imagine.?
