The Gay Village’s rainbow métro station, Beaudry

Le Village gai (Gay Village, often shortened to Le Village) is the largest gay village in North America, mostly along rue Sainte-Catherine est from rue Saint-Hubert (near metro Berri-UQAM) to avenue Papineau (near metro Papineau). The metro station in the middle of the area, Beaudry, is marked with rainbow pillars. Come to enjoy Montreal’s pride celebration, Divers/Cité (last week of July, first week of August), which is the second largest in North America after Toronto‘s. Then the Montreal Pride Parade event follows in mid-August with more fabulous fun to be had by all attendees.

Canada’s contributions to gay rights are widely known, but Quebec was the first province in Canada to pass a non-discrimination law for sexual orientation and to provide same-sex civil unions. Same-sex marriage is legal in Quebec and across Canada; neither residency nor citizenship are required for a marriage license, but there is a three-week waiting period after you receive the license. Canadian and Quebec immigration law allow residents to sponsor their same-sex partners or spouses.

Sainte-Marie is a working-class neighborhood to the east of Le Village. It is notably the home of the Maison Radio-Canada, the radio and television broadcasting headquarters for Radio-Canada, the French language arm of the CBC.
