The Village runs more or less from De Lorimier Street to St-Hubert Street on Saint Catherine Street, and between Rene Levesque Boulevard on Amherst Street and Sherbrooke Street. The area covers a total coverage of almost two kilometres, making it the largest gay centre in North America based on area.
In the past, this used to be a poor working class population neighbourhood. The range was taken over by lesbian and gay groups after a controversial morality drive in the 1970’s closed down other “questionable” establishments. Over the years, The Village has been beautified, renovated and popularised, gaining acceptance and political clout. The communiity has been firmly established as the LGBT heart of Montreal, and frequently hosts festivals dedicated to and inspired by the lifestyle.
Now, there are many dining and nightlife optionsto choose from here. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Montreal Itinerary 5 Days.
