QUEER OF THE YEAR 2011: DAY 5

Talent. It comes in many shapes and many forms. For the Queer of the Year Talent challenge they had to put their culinary skills to the test. Now, not everyone is a chef. But they got detailed instructions with the help from Grumman 78’s Gaelle and Marc. Who was named champion in the queerest Iron Chef competition? Watch the video, and read on to get all the dirty details….

QUEER OF THE YEAR 2011: DAY 4

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…

QUEER OF THE YEAR 2011: DAY 3

Fuel up on that green tea and strap on those Sketcher’s Shape-Ups because today’s challenge is all about Healthy Lifestyle! Last night they got to tone up a bit in preparation for the physical fitness aspect by dancing on a… pole? That’s right. They got a pole dancing fitness class.

QUEER OF THE YEAR 2011: DAY 2

After a night of celebration and cheers at the housewarming party, the finalists arrived at the location for their first challenge surprisingly fresh and coherent. It’s a good thing too, because they had to turn up the heat and put their best face forward…

The Queer of the Year 2011 host is Mikala Bierma, gay famous for her YouTube web series “Disappointing Gay Best Friend.” Now, if Mikala is going to host a competition in Montreal, she’ll need to know a thing or two about the Gay Village. Luckily for her, I was there to give a tour….

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! These are my personal thoughts on this crackerjack group of Queers…

LESBIAN MONTREAL: JUNE

Summer is off to its cavalier start in good old Montreal. Montreal is a must-have-bike kind of a city in the summer, so even if you’re in town for just a bit, take a Bixi out to your next outing. We’ve got a fancy indie flea market where the cutest of the cutest will surely be, all sorts of nakedness at the Fringe Fest and Cirque du Soleil’s highly anticipated Totem…

A STRAIGHT FRIENDLY GUIDE TO MONTREAL’S GAY VILLAGE

We always talk about “gay-friendly” places outside the village where we gays can go to have a fun and safe time. But why not, every once in a while, take our straight friends into the Gay Village so we can all have a fabulous time together…

GAY MONTREAL: MAY

The month of May rhymes with Gay. Unfortunately, this prohibits me from creating a clever portmanteau such as last month’s hit “Gaypril”. Whatever April, May is sunny and beautiful so we don’t need to port any sort of manteau. Anyways, here are ways you can maximize your five gay senses in Montreal this May…
