Quebec, known to many as Canada’s French speaking province, is celebrated for its flamboyant Joie-de-Vivre, old world charm, and some of the hottest LGBTQ2+ celebrations on the planet.
A visit to Quebec City, the charming capital city, is often compared to a visit to Europe, without leaving North America. Centuries of history and romance can be felt throughout the cobblestone streets of Vieux-Québec (old Quebec), which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
LGBTQ2+ nightlife and events are also alive and well in this charming city with over 400 years of history. The Quebec City Pride Festival (Fête Arc-en-ciel de Québec) is a colourful four day event that takes place over the Labour Day weekend each year, complete with drag queens, community march and parties galore!
Montreal, Quebec’s sexy metropolis is the largest city in the province, and the second largest French-speaking city in the world. Sophisticated host to a long list of world-class events, including the annual Black & Blue Festival, put on by the Bad Boy Club Montreal (BBMC), attracting thousands of people from around the world.
While turning 375 years young in 2017, Montreal was host city for the first ever Canada Pride, plus a Human Rights Conference, creating a legacy for LGBTQ2+ Canadians, with plans to hold the event in a different city across Canada, every four years.
Fierté Montréal Pride is the largest LGBTQ2+ francophone celebration of Pride in the world. With over 200 activities anchored by their world-renowned gay village, Le Village, this event is high on the list for many international LGBTQ2+ travellers. Festivities run from August 9 – 19, 2018.
