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.

Here are 13 bucket-list worthy observation decks from around world over: Read the rest of this entry
