It is becoming a widely accepted axiom that gay people are tons of fun. As a gay man, I feel comfortable with this notion, and would also like to add that we’re creative, playful, strong and stylish! Oh yes, and we’re clearly humble. This being said, it is perfectly natural and normal to feel attracted to the gay community.
Remember last February when they said the groundhog saw its shadow and we’d have 6 more weeks of winter? Well, the groundhog lied. Spring has sprung my friends! And in Montreal, that means one thing: Terraces!

With 2010 just around the corner, it’s time to look back at the year we’ve had. It’s been a treat and a privilege for me to be involved in this incredibly cool campaign. I still can’t quite believe that I get to write about music and nightclubs in a city like Montreal and actually get paid for it. Both the blog and I will be back in the new year and will continue to cover this city’s dynamic nightlife scene, but before that let’s take a minute to look back at some of the highlights…
