One of the great centers of arts and culture in North America, Toronto is also one of the world's foremost gay destinations, hosting a famously large Gay Pride celebration each summer and cultivating a lively scene in the traditionally gay-nightlife neighborhood of Church Street Village as well as in more eclectic, indie-spirited, mixed neighborhoods like Queen Street West, which hosts its own queer-minded arts and cultural festival in August, and Leslieville.
