Montreal was the host city for the first world OutGames in August 2006.
The city was welcoming and blocked traffic from the main street of The Village, the gay district, as thousand of visitors
strolled up and down shopping and eating at the many cafes and restaurants–and looking at each other.
The opening and closing ceremonies as well as some of the athletic events took place in the 1976 Olympic stadium.
The city has a variety of architectural and visual delights.
