Artist's Description

Le Village gai, Rue Sainte-Catherine, Montréal, Quebec, Canada (8/8/2013)

From Tourisme Montréal:

“One of the largest gay villages in North America, Le Village Gai lies just east of downtown. In 1999 the city gave Beaudry, the main metro station, a complete facelift with rainbow pillars as a way of saying that the LGBT community plays a major role in Montréal’s all-inclusive way of life. Most of the Village is a quiet and quirky neighbourhood of gay men, lesbians, families and cozy B&Bs housed in century-old triplexes.

“From June to September the main drag, Sainte-Catherine Street, is closed to vehicles. Out-of-towners and native Montréalers alike leisurely stroll along the strip to shop, dine al fresco or just relax in the sun with a beer. The street has fashion and specialty boutiques, restaurants representing all major types of cuisine and a variety of bars.

“Throughout the summer, artists display their work, LGBT community groups set up information booths and local shops offer great things to buy. And it’s where Divers/Cité, Montréal’s wild, weeklong pride celebrations, unfolds.”
