Vancouver is a welcoming city for the LGBTQ community. Davie Village, which runs from Burrard St along Davie St to Denman St, is where the highest concentration of long-established gay clubs, pubs and stores are, while there’s more of a lesbian scene on Commercial Drive (“The Drive”). For information on LGBTQ events, check w qmunity.caw xtra.ca, w gayvancouver.net and w superdyke.com. The main draw in Vancouver’s LGBTQ calendar is Pride (t 604 687 0955, w vancouverpride.ca), which usually takes place over three days during the first long weekend in August.
