MONTREAL GAY VILLAGE 201

Montreal’s Gay Village is the cultural and economic hub for the city’s LGBT community.

The contestants were still in a relax-y coma when this challenge day began, because the night before they spent a taxing night at one of Montreal’s premier spas Bota Bota (spa on a boat, so nice they named it twice.) They needed the rest after their long Healthy Lifestyle challenge. Next was time to let their Personality shine!

THINGS TO DO IN MONTREAL (AUGUST 11-18)

Every time I think Montreal is about to take a break from all the fun it keeps having, it pumps up the volume – this week, that means Montreal’s loud-and-proud Pride celebrations, an above-ground graffiti and skateboarding fest, five days of francophone-style blues and a weekend-long children’s festival. Plus the usual music, comedy, theatre (like The Lion King!) and general fun (always free!) in the sun…

FINALISTS FOR QUEER OF THE YEAR 2011 ANNOUNCED

The battle for the Queer of the Year 2011 crown has already been a tumultuous one. 20 semi-finalists laughed, cried and answered some hard-hitting questions that not even Barbara Walters herself would dare ask. 14 were ruthlessly eliminated, making way for 6 finalists to begin cat fighting it out August 7 to 14 in Montreal!
