Plus: Montreal Pride this coming weekend

Xtra.ca’s Michael Pihach travelled to Montreal over the August long weekend for Divers/Cité, the city’s gay arts and culture festival.

Montreal gets another dose of queer fun during this weekend’s Pride Celebrations. Xtra.ca will be at the community fair on Sat, Aug 15, and we’ll have pictures to share from Sunday’s parade — check back next week!
