CheckOut: Hotel X, Toronto
The brand-new, stylistically-striking Hotel X Toronto in Toronto, Canada is anything but yet another cookie-cutter urban luxury hotel crammed into a downtown lot. Hotel X Toronto is a very short taxi/Uber/Lyft ride from everything that Toronto has to offer; making it an ideal headquarters for enjoying Pride Toronto or any other event in Canada’s largest city.

We’ll Celebrate Gay Arts & Culture at Divers/Cité, Montreal. You?
We’re heading to Montreal next week for Divers/Cité, one of the two major gay celebrations that take place every summer. The other, Pride Montreal, takes place August 11-17.
