Montreal Might Actually Be Hosting World Pride In 2023

Get ready for the biggest celebration to ever come to Montreal.
Montreal Might Actually Be Hosting World Pride In 2023

We all know the Montreal Pride Parade was held this Sunday. Chances are if you were in the city you went to the event to support the LGBTQ+ community, listen to music, watch all of the parade floats go by, catch a glimpse of Justin Trudeau marching in the parade or maybe you just wanted to find an excuse to celebrate and party. Whatever your reason is, we can all agree this year's Pride festival was a good one.

This year's Pride was so good that there's actually a pretty good chance the city could host World Pride 2023!

The news came right before the parade began yesterday afternoon. Montreal Mayor Valérie Plante announced to the public that we're on the list to potentially host the world renowned event five years from now.

To top the surprise announcement, Valérie Plante afterwards told the city that Montreal is drafting a sexual diversity policy that'll be released next year. Both Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard agreed and supported Plante, with Trudeau even addressing Montreal's hidden issue of the massive amount of homeless youth in the city that identify with the LGBTQ+ community.

It's still in talks but Montreal might even introduce rainbow coloured buses that are in service year round! You can tell already that the city REALLY wants to have the opportunity to host World Pride. Who knows, maybe even more Pride-themed events and sights will be introduced to the city in the upcoming months.

We can't tell for sure just yet, but you can probably expect Montreal in five years from now having the most epic Pride event to ever exist.
