GAY NEW YEAR’S EVE

As 2011 races into a dramatic finish, it’s time to reflect on the year gone and look forward on what’s to come. 2011 was an amazing 12 months in Montreal. From Igloofest and Nuit Blanche, from Bixi bikes and summer festivals to Queer of the Year, Montreal has never been busier! While it’s easy to already be thinking ahead to another year of cabane a sucre, terraces, restaurants and parties… let’s not get too ahead of ourselves. 2011 is not technically over and we plan on going out on December 31 with one last hurrah!

12 GAY & LESBIAN THINGS TO DO IN NOVEMBER

It is November and the homosexuals are getting chilly. Time to make a trip to H&M and stock up on scarves. All the scarves. The weather here in Montreal has played nice, so I’m really running behind in my late-fall/pre-winter fashion shopping. At least all the visitors that come to Montreal this time of year can enjoy temperate weather while taking in all the beautiful fall colours. 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..

MONTREAL GAY VILLAGE 201

Montreal’s Gay Village is the cultural and economic hub for the city’s LGBT community. Filled with stores, restaurants, clubs and coffee shops, this is where many gay and lesbian Montrealers live, work and play. We did a “Gay Village 101” a couple years ago, but there’s so much going on in the Village that we felt it needed an update!

BLACK AND BLUE: BLACKJACK 21

The Bad Boys Club of Montreal (BBCM) is at it again! They’re rocketing into another decade of high-profile, large-scale dance events while continuing their ultimate goal and vision of raising money to find a cure for HIV/AIDS. This year’s theme is high-rollers BlackJack21 for the 21st Anniversary of Black & Blue! To be clear is is not a casino night, but will be filled with glitz, glamour, and some high-stakes games…
