Some friends and I from Austin are coming into NO sometime this next month. We were wondering what are the best gay clubs? Also I have some friends that are underage. Are they any gay clubs or bars that will allow them in? I hear the city in general is pretty lax about under age drinking in general no?

Your friends will be carded. While they may not look too close at the ID, they will ask for it. Be prepared.

They are not lax about underage drinking anymore than anywhere else. I've done it, but that's because older friends got a bottle and we poured up and walked around. Sometimes you can slide (I got into a strip club at 18 and served alcohol a few times) but I've been there about 100 times.
I have no idea what the best gay clubs are but you can walk down Bourbon to the "gay end" and there are a few places there.
It's hard to enjoy partying in the city if you are under 21.

They used to be more lax on underage drinking but in the last 5-10 years it has become more strict, especially in the French Quarter area, though many neighborhood bars still might not be that strict. Also I think for a lot of places you can get in if you are 18 years or older (but can't drink if not 21 but secretly an older friend can get you a drink), though they might have done away with that in the last few years too? That was all just on the general bars/clubs, not sure on gay bars/clubs, though I imagine it was similar.

Specifically on the best gay bar, maybe try google or something, because I don't know.

Some of the better gay bars (at least IMO; I am straight with a number of gay friends) are the ones off of Bourbon. As you get more into the Marigny and Bywater, you would probably be less likely to be carded. At least at the door.
