I recently discovered this brilliant video, created by Studio Elliot, a local graphic design agency in Montreal! It’s the most charming ode to Montreal and a perfect example of why I wish there was a Love button on Facebook! http://www.youtube.com/v/m-eFzcjlpcU&hl=en_US&fs=1

BENT: An Opportunity for Historic Queer Theatre

“I love you. What’s wrong with that?” – Max (the lead character in BENT) Sherman Miller’s critically acclaimed (and controversial) 1979 play, BENT, will be presented in Montreal from November 5 – 15, 2009. I am highly anticipating this performance. Find out how you can get tickets…

Montreal designer HELMER JOSEPH could not have thought of a better time to open his brand new boutique on St-Laurent Boulevard. With Montreal Fashion Week recently coming to an end, fashionistas from around the world will be able to put their hands on his incredible designs; fresh OFF THE RUNWAY!

Gay Cinema: Getting the Homegrown Experience

A couple weeks ago I mentioned that Montreal’s LGBT Film Festival (Image+Nation) was quickly approaching. I gave you the inside scoop on five films playing at the festival… before the program had even been released! I know, you are wondering how I get access to such top-secret gay information. Well, I have my sources. But now the full schedule is up, and it’s looking good. Check out some of my recommendations…

Montreal Art + Design Guerrilla

  There are many different ways to let art express itself, and it’s not always a matter of finding the appropriate museum or art gallery. I think the young generation from the Montreal design and art scenes understood that pretty clearly; that’s why a bunch of them created a collective called ART & DESIGN MONTREAL, dedicated to promote local creative minds on an international scale. Read the full story to know more about two very exciting projects happening in Montreal at the moment.

Distroboto: Montreal Art and Music

Tina Fey once called Montreal “New York with more cigarettes” and, for a while, a trip to most restaurants and bars revealed the city to be deserving of that tag. But, like any sensible place, Montreal has largely butted out of the smoking in public. But one enterprising organization has figured out how to create something new from the old and, in the process, given you a chance to take home a part of the cities’ vibrant art and music scene…

Montreal Shopping: Beyond in Love with Tati B.

Tatiana Poblah was smart when she chose “I love Tati B.” as her business slogan. The only thing is that “In Love” doesn’t even start to describe how head-over-heels I am for the work of this Montreal fashion illustrator, with a boutique on Pratt Avenue in swanky Outremont.

Image+Nation: Montreal’s LGBT Film Festival

Recently I was surfing the World Wide Web when I stumbled across an article on afterelton.com that listed the 50 Best Gay Movies. In the post, they pose the question, “Why aren’t there more good gay movies?” It’s true. There is a ton of cinematic queer crap out there. But thankfully the folks at Image+Nation screen through the mediocre to present the best of LGBT film every autumn in Montreal. Watch the sexy trailer of the gay film I am most excited to see…

Music Videos and more at the MACM

The MACM, or Musée d’Art Contemporain de Montréal, is normally the domain of my colleague Daviel, whose knowledge of the Montreal art scene towers over my “that’s a pretty picture” style approach to art criticism. There are, however, occasions when the MACM crosses over into the dark realm of nightlife…
