Montreal Is Made For Us

Canada’s bilingual cultural capital welcomes women for Pride.

CULTURE TRIP

Jardins Gamelin, Tourism Montreal/Daphné Caron

To get to Montreal from New York City takes only an hour and a half with Delta, but it feels like a world away—and I mean that in a good way. A North American city with true Francophone flair, combined with the fierce spirit of independence and tolerance for which Canada is known, Montreal is both a cutting-edge, contemporary metropolis and a city steeped in 375 years of history. But whether your taste leans toward the antique or the modern, Montreal is unabashedly gay and boasts a Gay Village (Village Gai) that even registers as a location on your wireless device. The Beaudry Metro station has the world’s oldest rainbow symbol incorporated into its structure: The front entrance has featured rainbow-colored pillars since 1999. Boasting possibly the world’s oldest gay fetish store (Chez Priape) and the world’s oldest gay place of worship (Saint-Pierre-Apôtre, a 165-year-old Catholic church), the Gay Village centers on the pedestrian-friendly Rue Sainte-Catherine, which especially from May through December is a vibrant and thriving oasis of boutiques, coffee shops, bars, and restaurants.

About Curve

S ummer is synonymous with Pride, as destinations all around the globe hold LGBTQ celebrations from June through September in a time of sunshine, self-expression, and socializing. It’s the season when we bask in the feeling of coming into our own, together. This issue, with rumors that beloved lesbian TV show The L Word will be revived by Showtime, we caught up with Kate Moennig, who played the iconic character of Shane. We also spoke with liberal political commentator Sally Kohn about her book The Opposite of Hate, which urges us to emphasize what connects us rather than what divides us. And, as your soundtrack for the pleasant weeks ahead, we recommend putting the unstoppable out musician Hayley Kiyoko on your playlist. We also put Montreal and Oakland on your map, and we hope you’ll feel inspired to join other women in life-changing adventures with Olivia Travel. Finally, I would like to send a sincere thank you to the many readers who contacted us about Curve’s relaunch. We’re as delighted as you are with the new direction!
