So as the Gays and Lesbians saddle up their scarves and fashion boots, here are 12 things they can do in Montreal…

THINGS TO DO IN MONTREAL: OCTOBER 21-28

No doubt about it, it’s fall now – the north winds blow, the leaves fall, the days grow shorter. Which also means Montreal nights are longer, and what better excuse to eat, drink and be merry well into the wee hours. Lovers of live music will adore this week in Montreal, as will lovers of film, as one film festival comes to an end and another begins. Montreal stages brace for drama, comedy, politics and the stomping of hundreds of horses hooves (seriously!). Art, poetry and spoken word round out the busy week with heady, ready made-in-Montreal creative stuff..

QUEER OF THE YEAR 2011: DAY 4

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!
