Halifax, Nova Scotia: Atlantic Canada’s Gay Heart Celebrates Milestone

One of the friendliest spots in Canada (and that’s saying something considering how amicable our northern neighbors are generally speaking) is Halifax, Canada.

It’s also beautiful, rich in history and into its gay and lesbian culture. To wit, they are unspooling their first annual OUTeast Queer Film Festival this weekend (through June 17). And they celebrate the 25th anniversary of Halifax Pride July 20-29.

From the organizers:

  • Halifax Pride is bound to be a crowd-pleasing festival that’s not to be missed; from the parade, the parties, and the cultural events like Queer Acts Theatre Festival and the Song Writer’s Circle, to sport events like the annual Dykes vs. Divas Softball Game, and symbolic events such as the vigil, flag-raising and inter-faith service.

There are LGBT-friendly and popular events all year round and great TAG-approved accommodations and terrific dining (seafood is a speciality, natch). Visit Rainbow Halifax for a few LGBT-specific and general travel planning tools.
