It is my belief that Halloween enables people to act out their inebriated fantasies in somewhat acceptable social spaces. Personally, I’ve never needed Halloween for that…
Yet Halloween is always a special day for us gays; we wait all year to release our inner cracked-out pop star or gay cowboy fantasies.
As you might imagine from our renown liberal culture, Montreal enjoys a good freak-fest. Check out my snarky costume suggestions, and the Montreal parties where you can release your inner gay ghoul…
My 10 Queerest Costume Recommendations:
- Celine Dion in a kayak
- Pregnant Clay Aiken
- Sarah Jessica Parker’s severed mole
- That adorable chubby guy doing Single Ladies
- The Not-So-Ambiguously Gay Duo (this requires a lot of public humping)
- The dork in this video: Gay Cam for Google
- Lady Gaga’s severed penis
- Lesbian gynecologist with no arms
- Dumbledore in Drag
- Mercedes Jones from Glee (required accessory: baseball bat)
Now here are 5 parties where you can rock your gay costume:
Faggity Ass Friday (October 30) – An awesome monthly faggitylicious dance party that benefits a local youth organization. For the Halloween edition, expect a mélange of gay zombies and dykie draculas. $10.
ELECTROSHOCK 04 (October 30) – A gender blending evening featuring 4 smokin’ Montreal DJs spinning until the wee hours of the morning. BYOB. $5 before midnight, $10 after.
Parking Nightclub (October 31)will feature DJ Peter Rauhofer in what will surely be a sexy spooktacular. Cover ranges (usually around $20).
