Vancouver Gay Guide and Photo Gallery


The host of the most recent Winter Olympics and one of the most dramatically situated cities in the world, Vancouver ranks among Canada's top gay destinations, especially its bustling Davie Village and funky Commercial Drive - two areas popular with the GLBT set. This gleaming, contemporary city with a smart food scene, hip shopping, and some of the country's best museums is also perfect for outdoorsy types, with everything from pristine beaches to majestic ski areas. Here's a gallery of top sights around the city, from raucous gay discos to leafy parks.
