She speaks French…very HOT!
The Village–or “le Village”–is the epicenter of Montreal’s gay scene. Innumerable restaurants, shops, bars, nightclubs, and cafes dot the vicinity with their characteristic flair, and even the local metro stop is decked out in rainbow pizzazz. Sainte-Catherine Street is the Village’s main thoroughfare and the backbone of its activity, with a diverse array of establishments along and on either side of it. Gay-friendly venues are also to be found slightly farther afield, as in the city’s downtown area, for instance.
Very Gay Owned
Travelers will be delighted to learn that a variety of gay-owned-and-operated guesthouses offer affordable lodging within walking distance of the city’s major attractions. Visitors may also be interested in learning that regulations in Canada are rather more liberal than our own, which may make your night at the corner strip joint a bit more exciting than expected. There are also no less than nine–count ’em nine–bathhouses filled overflowing with locals and tourists, and unlike even San Francisco, locals do not even bat an eye at the in your face street facades advertising homo sex.
This is why Montreal is a must visit destination and is 100% gay freindly . Bienvenue……
Montreal, is also the home of the highly regarded Black & Blue Festival organized by the Bad Boy Club Montreal. Check out some coming up events:
Hallelujah. Let’s head to Church–Street that is.
The Church Wellesley Gay Village is world famous for its homo-rific nightlife, inclusive community center and fabulous restaurants. You might also recognize many hot-spots from the television show “Queer as Folk,” which was filmed in the area for the five years it aired on Showtime. Legend has it the area was bought way back in the 1820s by a gay merchant named Alexander Wood. LGBT-ers have since made this district into quite a lovely home of which Wood could only be proud.
And Toronto is one of the few cities that has two gay villages. The Gay Village at Church & Wellesley has everything a gay traveler could need or want: bookstores, gay-owned accommodation, queer theater and gay and lesbian bars catering to all flavors and tastes. The Queer West Village is edgier with funky restaurants and a number of queerish mixed bars. Annual events such as pride week at the end of June and Church Street Fetish Fair in August are highlights.
Here is a few events that are coming up in Toronto:
Nestled between the the Pacific Ocean and the mountains, Vancouver is a vibrant city of majestic sights, clear skies and a kaleidoscope of people. Located in lovely British Columbia on Canada’s west coast, Vancouver is home to two of Canada’s most active gay communites.
The first of these is Davie Village, where visitors will find a myriad of gay-friendly bars, accommodations and a thriving nightlife. Davie Village is also a short distance away from many of city’s tourist attractions, such as the breathtaking Stanley Park.
Vancouver’s other gay-friendly community, Commericial Drive (known locally as “The Drive,”) is the hub of the city’s lesbian community. The Drive is located in the city’s east end, and features a variety of affordable ethnic dining options, bed & breakfasts and unique shopping opportunities.
