Montreal Pride 2017 and the First Canada Pride: PHOTOS

After nearly two weeks of celebrating Canada’s LGBT movement and the community in Montreal during its annual Pride festivities, hundreds of thousands gathered for the Fierté Montréal (aka Montréal Pride) parade on Sunday where 270 different groups marched. Among those marching were Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the openly gay Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar, which was historic as it was the first time a foreign head of state was participating in a Canadian pride parade.

This year’s celebrations were quite special for it not only being Fierté Montréal’s tenth anniversary, but also Montréal’s 375th and Canada’s 150th. These two milestones for the city and nation also brought on a new concept for the nation, a Canada Pride, and it made sense for Montréal to hose the first edition. Canada Pride will occur every four years across different places in the country.

Binge Worthy: Queen of the South (Plus – A Passion for Photography)

 

This post is sponsored by USA Network but all opinions are my own.

Watching some reruns of Modern Family on my DVR I spotted a commercial for the upcoming second season of Queen of the South – and I’m glad I didn’t skip through it! Allured by the grim and opulent scenes, my first sip of this female-empowerment narco drama was taken. I knew I would need to look up the show and watch an episode or two at least. Then the opportunity to do this sponsored post with USA Network came up days later and I took it as a sign that I was meant to watch the show. Cut to me bingeing the whole first season on Netflix in a weekend! Keep reading below to see why you should be watching this show – and also find out how I #slay like the main characters: Read the rest of this entry
