I have lived in this neighbourhood, and just love it. I find it to be such a friendly and fun neighbourhood for people of all kinds, with a lot of great restaurants, some shops (including chains like David's Tea and the Body Shop), and really fun bars with great music (north of Church and Carlton). World Pride 2014 was an... More

I always love going to the village, I feel at home, the people are welcoming and inviting. the whole vibe i get from walking up Church is unlike any other place ive ever been. The bars and cafes have amazing food and drink as well as the best staff of any bar ive ever been too.

We didn't do much besides walk around and enjoy the churches and the flowers in the park. It's a very scenic area, also popular for some other cultural scenes, but we were just there for the outdoor stroll. There were two very beautiful churches which we visited, although I can't remember the names of either. Still, it's a very beautiful... More

Colourful Church-Wellesley Village in Toronto has to be the world's most welcoming LGBT village for heterosexuals! It is even more so during Toronto Pride when we can enjoy the Pride Parade on Yonge followed by the StreetFair along Church. And there's now a new reason to take a walk around Church Street: the Murals Project. On one end, there the... More

Church Street isn't quite what it used to be -- say, twenty years ago. The gay community has moved outwards and scattered among the rest of the city, especially as "downtown" property has become more expensive. But, with a good selection of restaurants and pubs as well as the usual bars, it remains a lively hub for gay people, with... More

Church street is a fantastic meeting place for the gay community in Toronto and a perfect way to learn about the different options Toronto's night life has in store. Start your walk at College/gerard street and let yourself be wooed into small shops with interesting articles, bars and pubs with free publications, maps and advertisements for the parties of the...

This is Toronto's gay district. It is clean and modern, however there are a lot of people who proposition you, which made me uncomfortable. Some bakeries here are a.mazing though

If this is your sexual orientation than this is the part of town to go to check this type of thing out. I don't make it a habiit to go to this part of town in Toronto but like to check the pawn shops just south of this community. There is always sommething interesting to check in these type of...

I've lived in this area and visit it every summer. It's a very friendly area and always seems like people have time to sit on patios or in coffee shops. The pubs in the area are great and I've seen a few good shows in the clubs. It's all good fun!! Pride is unreal so much going on and always... More
