Then, two weeks later, Montreal's official Gay Pride celebration is held from August 13 to August 17. Most of the events take place in the city's Gay Village (filled with restaurants, shops, and bars all catering to our kind) and the week ends with the Montreal Gay Pride Parade along blvd. Rene-Levesque. Here's a map showing parade route and events locales.
Daniel from Montreal Tourism recently took to the streets of the city's Gay Village outfitted with a bike and a handy cam duct taped to the top of his helmet to give you an inside look of the neighborhood:
If you want to get a better look at the city, consider checking out Montreal in person during Divers/Cite or Montreal's Gay Pride celebration. For more info and everything you need to plan your escape north, check out Montreal Tourism's website.
