Pride Across Canada

Happy Pride Month, Yelpers! Each June, celebrations around the world commemorate the Stonewall riots of 1969, a pivotal moment in the fight for LGBTQ equality. Just as these events honor the struggles and advances of the gay rights movement, Yelp would like to celebrate how businesses with queer connections have shaped the cities that they call home.

Here at Yelp, we know love is love is love.

Whether you want to dance your butt off in Vancouver, drag your butt out of bed for drag brunch in Toronto, or celebrate Pride in the magical Maritimes, this blog will make you proud.

We stole the best and most celebratory Pride ideas from lovely local experts, AKA Yelpers, to make this June extra fabulous for you. Here are 20 lovely LGBTQ-friendly businesses from the wild west to the easy east.
