Due to the acceptance (and celebration) of gay and lesbian peoples, Montréal has become one of the top gay destinations in the world. Even the rockstars know that! I sat down with Tyler and Jim from the Canadian rock group “Barenaked Ladies” to talk about all sorts of delicious gay things. What type of gay stuff does that band like to do? Who is their gay diva of choice? Who is hotter: George Stroumboulopoulos or Michael Bublé? This is information you need. What results is a humorous (and dare I say ‘touching’) interview that is a must-watch for anyone who loves these Canadian rock icons, or just enjoys a bit of gay flair. My favorite quote is, “MORE GAY INTERVIEWS!” Maybe I’ve found my calling?
