Montreal Gay scene and the 1st World Out Games

Recognized as one of North America's most cosmopolitan cities and is the largest French speaking city in the world after Paris. Montreal is renowned worldwide for being a gay-friendly place and has become a preferred destination of choice for gay travel and gay vacations. Located in the Province of Quebec, where same sex partners are legally afforded the same status as heterosexual partners, Montreal is home to a thriving gay and lesbian community that is estimated to represent 15% of the city's population of more than 3 million. With-in Montréal and much of Québec, you will find a special spirit of openness and tolerance, between the general public and the whole gay community.

The 1st World Outgames Montréal 2006 was a major athletic and cultural event that brought together gay people from all over the world.  With more than 18,500 participants from more than 120 countries, along with 500,000 visitors, flock to the city. Based on the principles of Participation and Celebration, Respect and Fairness, Innovation, Diversity and Empowerment (PRIDE), the games welcome everyone, regardless of their sexual orientation, age, gender, race, religion, nationality, ethnicity, physical challenge, political beliefs, physical ability, athletic/artistic skills or HIV/ health status.

The Montréal 2006 sports programme is an exciting display of athletic achievement, catering to all levels of ability. Competitions were spread over seven days with thousands of participants from around the world displaying their skills in 35 sports such as Powerlifting, Bodybuilding, Wrestling, Swimming, Marathon, Diving, Waterpolo, Synchronized Swimming, and many, many more.

The Out Games week co-in sided with the same week of Montreal’s Gay Pride festival Divers/cite, so there was twice as much fun and entertainment to enjoy.

After experiencing the Out Games it could be seen that the actual sporting side of the event was less attended than the social/partying side. This may have been because a very similar event called the Gay Games was held in the USA just a few weeks before and took away a lot of the American athletes. So why were two massive events, that are so similar, held so close to each other?... The Gay Games (which has been running for 20 years, holding events every 4 years) had originally chosen Montreal to be its next destination in 2006. Unfortunately the organisers apparently fell out over finances. The Gay Games committee then pulled out of Montreal and held its event back in its home city of Chicago, USA. Meanwhile because Montreal had put so much effort into organizing the planned event they went ahead and held their own, calling it the Out Games. Montreal held the Olympics back in 1976, exactly 30 years on 2006 was the year for the 1st World Out Games.

The next “Out Games” is planned for Copenhagen in 2009: web site: or

The next “Gay Games” is planned for Cologne in 2010: web site: or

Unfortunately neither the Gay Games, nor Out Games have Rugby as a sport. Please organisers: try and include it in your next event; there are a lot of boys who will attend/play, it’s a very popular sport especially here in Europe. There are gay rugby teams all around the world. Here in London we have the very sucsessful Kings Cross Steelers.

Montreal Gay Village

The Village is one of the largest gay and lesbian neighbourhoods in the world. Beaudry Metro Station, bearing the colours of the gay community, is located at the core of the Village, upon exiting Beaudry station, the Village extends before you from west to east, and from south to north, centering around St. Catherine Street. Here you will find café’s, bistros, boutiques, restaurants and several erotic nude male lap dancing clubs such as Stockbar, Campus and Adonis. What makes them unique to other male lap dancing clubs around the world is that these boys dance with full blown erections to everyone in the bar. The village, one of Montreal's most colourful neighbourhoods is renowned for its wild nightlife and the diversity of the people. With its reputation for open-mindness, good taste, great hospitality, you're sure to find something to please you, no matter what your taste requests.

There is a maze, fog, darkness, dim neon lighting, ramps, catwalks, music and Twilight Zone sound effects for an experience that is escapism at its best. Many different games are available, and extra late hours on weekends make it a good way to start a night out.
