Gay Vancouver

Nestled between the the Pacific Ocean and the mountains, Vancouver is a vibrant city of majestic sights, clear skies and a kaleidoscope of people. Located in lovely British Columbia on Canada's west coast, Vancouver is home to two of Canada's most active gay communites.

The first of these is Davie Village, where visitors will find a myriad of gay-friendly bars, accommodations and a thriving nightlife. Davie Village is also a short distance away from many of city's tourist attractions, such as the breathtaking Stanley Park. Vancouver's other gay-friendly community, Commericial Drive (known locally as "The Drive,") is the hub of the city's lesbian community. The Drive is located in the city's east end, and features a variety of affordable ethnic dining options, bed & breakfasts and unique shopping opportunities.
