Sexy, Stylish and hot! This is one August Pride not to miss.
Every August, Montreal Gay Pride takes over the streets of the gay village for 7 days in a series of concerts, parades, exhibitions and demonstrations. Events centered mostly in Parc Emilie-Gamelin.
The Montreal Gay Pride Parade takes place on Sunday, and starts at 1 p.m. at the corner of St. Mathieu and René-Lévesque, moving east on René-Lévesque until it reaches Sanguinet. Expect the parade to last two to three hours. Crowds gather at the finale at the corner of Berri and Ste. Catherine, at Place Émilie-Gamelin where festivities will continue with an outdoor dance event: the MEGA T-DANCE.
Other events held during the pride include everything from an official Pride Brunch to a Pride Run to the Party BYOL and Party Black & White.
One of the largest in the world, Montréal’s Gay Village is a spectacular nucleus of creativity, activity and diversity. Here we find cafés, boutiques, antique shops and restaurants for all tastes nestled beside cozy B&Bs housed in century-old triplexes; vibrant artistic talent showcased in a variety of ways; and all this, enveloped in a laid-back, open urban vibe where pretty much anything goes.
With Sainte-Catherine Street as its main artery, The Village extends from east to west around the Beaudry metro station (that proudly flaunts LGBT rainbow colours). This main drag is closed to vehicles from June to September, creating a sublime summertime pedestrian zone ripe with patios, sidewalk shops, art displays and a seemingly never-ending parade of street fashion. The street features specialty boutiques, a variety of bars and many restaurants representing multiple cuisines.
With a lot of the streets being closed for pride in the gay area it is important to try and find a hotel close to all the fun,
Here are the hotels we recommend that have good reviews and keep you close to all the action
