Queer Quebec: The Ultimate Gay Quebec City Travel Guide

Montreal is a major LGBTQ travel destination, with a huge gayborhood and epic Pride festival. I’ve been lucky enough to attend Montreal Pride twice, and it was a travel highlight for me. In contrast, there aren’t as many activities or places to go for LGBTQ travelers to Quebec City. Some places are for gay men only which narrows the options for the rest of us. There is a silver lining to have a smaller LGBTQ scene. When there are fewer places for lesbian and gay Quebec City places to go, you won’t have to worry about missing out! This guide to lesbian and gay Quebec City things to do will help you explore the queer side of Quebec on your next vacation.
