MONTREAL GAY LIST: OCTOBER

Posted on September 30th, 2010 by .

Each month THE MONTRÉAL BUZZ features five gay or gay-friendly things to do or see around the city. Recommendations range from parties to bistros to festivals to boutiques to cultural events.

Here are our suggestions for the month of October.

[party] BLACK & BLUE – The annual Montreal Black & Blue Festival is one of the world’s great parties. What started back in 1991 as a simple fundraiser for HIV/AIDS related charities has become a full-fledged 7-day social, cultural, sports and party event that attracts thousands of people from around the globe to Montreal. This year is the 20th anniversary of Black & Blue, and the organizational team is sparing no expense in throwing a grand shindig! October 6 – 12.

[lgbt film festival] IMAGE & NATION – Pronounced “imagination” (but with a sultry French accent), has been offering Montreal the best of gay, lesbian, bisexual and trans cinema for the past two decades. This year’s festival runs October 28 – November 7, and will feature over 100 gay and lesbian films (long and short) to nourish the creative queer mind. Show times, like sexual orientations, vary.

[exposition] DENIS GAGNON – The Montreal Museum of Fine Art will host a retrospective exhibit highlighting the work of one of Canada’s leading creative talents: hometown homo Denis Gagnon. Internationally renown for his integrity in the international fashion community, Gagnon’s trademarks are his trendy black glasses and demure presence. Any gay with a penchant for fashion should not miss this. Starting October 19.

[comedy] MARGARET CHO – Arguably the poster child for fag hag-dom, the capricious Cho will be strapping it on and making sweet love to Montreal on Saturday October 23. This time through she’s bringing some songs with her, such as the family favorite, “Eat Shit and Die!” If you’re a delicate gay, you’re fucked.

[cuisine] FRENCH RESTAURANTS – Let’s be honest, if you’re going to travel to Montreal, chances are you might want to eat some French baguette. We’ve nabbed a reputation as the “Paris” of North America and, travelers visit with certain expectations of cultural and culinary offerings dancing in their heads. Our crème sauces never disappoint!
