    I am going to Montreal Pride by myself and looking too meet other dudes around my age to make some new friends. Anybody else going?

    Aslo, it is my first time to Montreal. Any good places to visit or to avoid? I like dancing, good food, and friendly down-to-earth people.

    Right on the spot! It's from July 29 to August 2013.
    The best thing to do is just hang out on Ste-Catherine street, which is closed to trafic in the (gay) Village (east of St-Hubert). To go out, Appolon club could be a good start, then Stereo if you are into after-hours (both are on Ste-Cath). Feel free to ask any question.
    A few words of French will get you a long way in Montréal (just show you are making an effort).

    I'm a little out of touch with life in the village, but there are two pride festivals in montreal. One is happening now and goes till the 4th (http://diverscite.org/wp/). It is mostly parties hosted by private gay party dudes that you pay money to get into.

    The second one is in a few weeks and has public parties in the parc (Emilie-gamalin) that are usually fun (http://www.fiertemontrealpride.com/en/pride/programme/).Be sure to go to the outdoor T-dance on Sunday after the parade.

    The bars Sky and Unity have great rooftop terraces. For hooking up gay411.com seems to be pretty popular in Montreal. Oasis sauna used to have to best looking guys, but someone else would have to confirm if they still do.

    This is one great choice for your stay. It's right on the edge of the gay village and a few feet from the entrance of a central Metro stop.

    I could add a few things.
    A nice gym (wall-to-wall gay...)is Nautilus, at 1431 St-André (near Ste-Cath - all saints names I guess...).
    Try also to get a hold of Fugues magazine. It will tell you at length about all things gay in Montréal. You will find it all over the Village.
