The Village runs a distance of nearly two kilometres, making it the largest gay district in North America in terms of scope of the complete area. Formerly a poor working-class neighbourhood, part of the Centre-South area of the city, the area was occupied by the gay and lesbian community after the huge expulsion of many gay businesses from an area closer to boulevard Saint-Laurent. The area has been considerably brightened up, thanks in part to recent investment from the various levels of all governments. Gays and lesbians live all Montreal, so their residential density in the Village is only slightly higher than elsewhere. However, the Village contains a variety of shops and services targeting the community, and so serves as an entertainment and tourism epicentre rather than as a gay neighbourhood strictly speaking.
Other than same sex couples holding hands in higher numbers than you'd normally see, this is a pretty cool place to hang out at a trendy cafe

Gay village metro station
Look at the colours of the metro station. It's the only one like that in Montréal. I Think this was the Beaudry metro station.
