Our Toronto Gay Travel Guide, Ontario – Canada

Toronto Gay Travel Guide: The city of Toronto as the largest city of Canada by inhabitants, is considered to be one of the gay and LGBT friendliest cities in Northern America. Located at the shore of Lake Ontario, the city with the remarkable skyline including the from afar visible CN Tower is a hub for travelers coming from all over the world including Western Europe. Once LGBT travelers arrived in Toronto, multiple airlines depart to all major cities of Canada, including the western Canadian cities Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton and the Rocky Mountains.

Arriving from Pearson International Airport in the business district of Downtown Toronto, the first sight of the city is the impressive building of Union Station, Toronto’s central station that is surrounded by huge skyscrapers. Part of the impressive skyline is the CN Tower right next to Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada. LGBT travelers should take a right turn walking along Queens Street West, so-called Queens West. A tip from us, go off the main street and make your way along Graffiti Alley until you arrive at Trinity Bellwoods Park, where the locals like to go to enjoy the sun in Toronto. On your way back, when you are getting hungry, take a detour to Chinatown for some food stands and restaurants. Don’t miss to make a reservation though! If you are up for more art, stop by the Art Gallery of Ontario. Back at Nathan Phillips Square, you should not forget to take a gay selfie in front of the illuminated Toronto Sign.

Up for more? Up for some shopping maybe? Plan a shopping tour starting at the Eaton Center Mall, continue shopping at the Yonge-Dundas Square and do not forget to include a visit to the gay shops at The Gay Village (The Church & Wellesley) like at Men’s Room. Once you are at Toronto’s gay neighborhood, get in touch with the LGBT community on Sundays during Drag Brunch at Glad Day Bookstore or later on while dancing the night away in bars and clubs like Woodys, Cruise and Tango, Buddies in Bad Times, and the Black Eagle. Last but not least of our Toronto Gay Travel Guide, go to the shore of Lake Ontario, the harbor area in Downtown and jump on a ferry to the Toronto Islands on Lake Ontario. On multiple islands, you will find a Gay and Nude Beach and the tiny Centreville Theme Park. We found the best view over Toronto’s skyline just a view minutes walk away from Centre Island Pier. And if you have some extra time, visit Niagara Falls Canada.

If you have any questions about your plans for traveling to Toronto, Ontario or Canada in general, send us an email, drop us a line and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and Instagram. See you around the world and the next time in Toronto!
