2-QTPOC brings new spirit to Divers/Cité

When CultMtl asked me to write an article about the upcoming 2-qtpocmontréal, I nearly spit out my sandwich. I am a 2-QTPOC fanqueer if ever there was one — I read the blogs, buy the cupcakes, and my apartment is littered with zines and posters produced by the culture’s many talented and dedicated artists and activists. Since receiving invitations to support and participate in the 10-day (August 10-19) program of art exhibitions, workshops, lectures, performances, and dance parties back in June, I have been looking forward to Pride in Montréal like never before.

Get your gay on at Divers/Cité

I would like to start off by thanking Festival Mode and Design and Divers/Cité for both choosing this weekend to hold their events. It feels like gay Christmas.

With so many things going on, from fashion shows to festivals and LGBTQ celebrations, how does one decide which to attend? Lend me your ear (or, in this case, eye) as I break down some musts for your festive and fashionable party weekend.
