Why you should go to Toronto !

With a population of over 2 million people, Toronto is the most populous city in Canada and is home to the biggest LGBTQ population in the country. Not only does Canada draw a large number of LGBTQ visitors year-round to it's queer friendly neighborhoods and events, but it attracts over a million LGBTQ people and allies each summer to its Pride event alone.

Toronto is widely known for being an LGBTQ friendly city to live in and to visit. The Gay Village, located at and around the intersection of Church St. and Wellesley St. near downtown Toronto, is home to many gay bars, drag shows, an LGBTQ community center and the Canadian Gay and Lesbian Archives. While The Gay Village has historically been where the gay community in Toronto has resided, today the queer district has expanded to most of Toronto's West End. Toronto's West End, particularly Queen St. West and Ossington Avenue, features a variety of queer-friendly bars, cutting-edge boutiques and trendy art galleries.
