Tucked into a cozy café during the early winter months of 2013, or prancing around in a tank top come August, Montreal’s Gay Village is a fun and friendly place to hang out all year. The Village is packed with places to eat, drink and dance that appeal to a wide variety of people!

The most important thing to remember when planning your Halloween guise is to find the balance between Witty-clever and Accidentally-sexy. It seems for the gays it’s not what you put on, but what you take off that makes a solid Halloween costume. It’ll be well worth the effort, as there is plenty going on Saturday Oct 27th (the day Montreal clubs decided was Halloween) to show-off the amazing craftsmanship of your homemade (and very last minute) tiny underwear and a binder full of women combo.

Montreal’s Gay Pride Parade took over downtown on Sunday, August 19in a burst of colour, music, dancing and spirit. Every Pride Parade I attend I make a point to really take it all in and recognize what’s really going on here.

Where not only can everyone be themselves, they can be proud to show it. As the last of the floats, community organizations, and sponsors cross the finish line, I think, “Montreal, this is something to be seriously proud of.”
