MONTREAL PHOTO ESSAY: DIVERS/CITÉ

Posted on August 3rd, 2010 by .

The past weekend was epic in Montreal.

A big part of the epic-ness was the annual Divers/Cité festival — a week long celebration of LGBT culture, music, art and more. There was a whole slew of artists, including Lady Bunny & Joey Arias, Sister Sledge, Frankie Knuckles, DJ Ana Paula and plenty of sassy others!

If you didn’t make it this year, then you best pull out your big gay calendar for 2011 and circle the last week in July. You’ve got a date with Montreal.

I was boppin’ about the festival enjoying the mixed drinks and drag queens. And in between martinis, I managed to snag a couple of photos. Enjoy!
