Montréal has an excellent LGBT scene, with the action concentrated in the area known as The Village – roughly located on rue Ste-Catherine est between rue Amherst and the Papineau Métro station. Fugues (w fugues.com) is one of the city’s main monthly French gay and lesbian magazines and websites. In early August, Divers Cité (w diverscite.org), the gay and lesbian pride parade, is the event of the year, while in October the massive Black & Blue circuit party (w bbcm.org) is one of the city’s – if not Canada’s – biggest and wildest gay parties.

Most of the restaurants and hangouts in The Village cater to an LGBT crowd in the evening, but are more mixed during the day.
