    Gay villages

    O:K so I am from Montreal and we have a huge and vibrant gay village here. I only came out 3 years ago so I really enjoy going to other places and visiting thier gay villages. So far I have been to Toronto's gay village and Provincetown.
    Both times I have been a little disapointed, I think it is because we are really spoiled here in Montreal, the village is huge and has tons of bars, stores, restaurants and saunas (for those who like that).

    So what are other gay villages or gay sections of towns like? Which is the best gay place you have ever visited? Enquireing minds want to know.

    I haven't actually been there, but I hear the Panamanian border is hopping with gay activity.

    Gay villages? Is that what they call gay ghettos nowadays?

    I was only being facetious.

    There are 'gay villages' in Uk too.

    I was thinking you might be referring to gay vacation spots.

    Kev, Montreal has the largest gay village that I know of. I don't know how NYC is lately or San Francisco they used to be great years ago. I really enjoyed the village in Montreal.

    Sounds interesting. We only have one small, tiny gay bar here.

    We have a gay village here in Manchester (setting for the original Queer as Folk).

    Quote from the following website link:
    "The Gay Village probably represents the the biggest concentration of gay interests, services and businesses in Europe"

    http://www.manchester2002-uk.com/gay/gay-vill1.html

    There's basically a ton of gay bars, clubs, restaurants and businesses all based around a couple of blocks in Manchester city centre, centred around Canal Street (the street signs, for which, are usually vandalised to "anal treet").

    I've only seen Montreal's, Toronto's and Ottawa's (if you can call Ottawa's couple of stores and gay-friendly restaurants a "village"). I spend more time in Toronto's because I have friends there, but Montreal's is the biggest and most interesting. That said, Toronto's has Folsom Fair North and I just got back from this past weekend's "Church Street Fetish Fair".

    In NYC, Chelsea is a big gay neighborhood. Of course, there is always the Village. There also seems to be an emerging gay community on 8th Ave in the
    50's.

    Good lord, years ago I used to stay at a hotel on 49th st. between 7th and 8th. 8th Avenue was all transvestite hookers and Greek-owned taquerias then. Toward the end there did seem to be a lot of construction going on.

    You don't mean to tell me there are actual gay people there now? Hard to imagine a less appealing area. Although it does have good access to the theater district.

    all i know is the NYC one, but its sizable. The focus is Christopher Street in the west village. then it moves outwards. the west village is entirely gay. chelsea to the north is the new gay hotspot. soho to the south is well established. and the east village to the east is where the majority of the gay bars are. so from river to river from canal to 30th. queer.

    What about the Outer Boroughs? Used to be the only gay bar outside Manhattan was one in Queens, according to the Damron Address Book.

    Yeah! If you're interested in joining a Lesbian Soft Ball Leauge.

    I never been to the "Gay Village" in Montreal.

    The Gay Mecca's in American used to be San Francisco; Castro, and New York City; Chelsea.

    I've been to the "Red Zone" in Boston...years ago. I've tricked in Provincetown, MA...with MUCH success.

    I was unimpressed in Miami's South Beach.

    I got drunk and threw up on Key West.

    I was molested and had a great time in New Orlean's French Quarter.

    I've met, and broke up with several guys in Dallas' "Oak Lawn/Crossroads" area.

    I started a Tequilla binging-Houston-PD was called bar-fight in Montrose.

    I nursed a sun-burn at the Bonham Exchange behind the Alamo, and the River Walk in San Antonio.

    I nearly got arrested on 6th Street in Austin.

    I got lost in West Hollywood near L.A.

    I made out with a Cowboy in Ft. Worth. (I never got his name, but dayhem those Wrangler butts drove me nuts!)

    So what is a "Gay Village?"

    Never regret anything, because in that moment it's exactly what you wanted.

    Yes everything is mostly on St. Catherine St., however, the village of which I speak goes on for at least ten big city blocks and there are things on the side street as well. Allot of the side streets are resedential and mostly gay people live there. From what I have seen mind you (and it ain't much) Montreal definatly has the largest and most vibrant gay village, or community if you prefer.

    P.S I call it the village because that is what it is known as here.

    Re: Gay villages

    I live in Seattle's traditional gay neighborhood, Capitol Hill. However, the neighborhood has never really been as truly gay as places like San Francisco's Castro. There are a lot of gay men around, but also a lot of hipsters and other youngish people who want to live near the urban core. We have quite a few bars and clubs (see map) and a couple of restaurants. Almost all of the gay bars in town are located along a ~10 block strip between Pike and Pine street in the neighborhood, although there are actually quite a few straight and mixed bars in that area too.

    Seattle is interesting in that it generally seems like gay people are scattered throughout the city more than in a lot of other towns. The city on the whole is very liberal and pro-gay with the more conservative elements being more commonly found in the suburbs that are further out.

    Re: Gay villages

    I agree with my buddy Elwood. Montreal has the best gay scene that I know of... but like him I haven't checked out the gay scene in many places except for Provincetown, Toronto and Ottawa.

    P'town is beautiful and can be loads of fun, but those who run the gay bars there need a lesson or two in how to market what they've got. There is something wrong when a so-called major dance club like the Paramount (Crown and Anchor) has about 15 people in it on a Friday night!

    Give me Montreal's Sky or Unity anytime!

    The one at the University of Michigan's little college town of Ann Arbor, liberal bubble of the mitten state, consists of a small plaza. ::shrug::

    I've been to New York's at the late night when it was dead, and Toronto's. I like Toronto's. It was seeing all the gay couples with their little babies everywhere that won me over.

    Cape Town, Africa's gay capital.

    Cape Town's gay village is just to the right of (if you are facing the mountain) and within walking distance of the city bowl.

    The area is known as De Waterkant. Here you will find gay clubs, restaurants, a steam & leisure club, and a choice of guest houses and hotels. It is also within walking distance of the waterfront.

    Re: Gay villages

    I'm from Montreal, too and I've visited Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, NYC, San Fran, Boston, Philly, Paris, Vienna and London (UK)'s gay areas. I can tell you that none are as "organized and centralized" as Montreal.

    Mostly you'll get bars or stores here and there, but nothing as concentrated as Montreal. SF's Castro is the one that comes closer to us on the localisation of bars, clubs and stores. BUT that doesn't mean that their communities are lesser. Especially NYC, SF and Paris have a much more well organized and UNITED community than Mtl. THerefore they don't need to be gathered like stocks.

    But Gee do i love my village ! ;oD

    Re: Gay villages

    Where we live has no gay village, but it seems as though per capita of population, there are more gay people than other cities of a similar size. I can think of at least 4 other gay guys from my class of about 120. It seemed as though every class was the same. Must have been something in the water!!!!

    Brisbane is the gay capital of Queensland, and it seems that most gay people centre on the suburbs of Spring Hill, Fortitude Valley, and Newfarm which are the closest to the CBD. Sydney on the other hand is another story. It seems that the whole area on the southern side of the harbour, from the CBD to Bondi Beach is all gay oriented

    Canal Street in Manchester is damned good....

    But the best place i've been to is Brighton in West Sussex. Fantastic!

    If you're ever in the UK, you GOT TO Check these two places out.

    Brighton is the gay capital of the UK. It may appear small compared to what you're all used to, but just imagine all those hot cute sexy English boys walking around....
