The same rights that every US citizen has under the Constitution, with the exception age restriction laws. Examples, the right to vote is 18, purchase and consumption of alchohol is 21, age of legal adult is 18, age to enter into legal contracts is 18, age to marry or enlist in the military without parental consent is 18, age when parental custody no longer applies is 18, age to drop out of school without parental consent is 18.

Where in Louisiana can a same-sex couple marry?

Legally, nowhere in Louisiana can you get a gay marriage. You would have to go out of state, but even then it would not be recognized in Louisiana. You could get married to a man anywhere in Louisiana, but I doubt that's what you're looking for. As a side, you would have to write a will if you wanted to have your partner have control over things in case of death or incapacitation, such as hospital visitation rights, control of remains, etc.
