Oh Canada!

The True North Strong and Free celebrates its 145th birthday today!  I was going to write my own tribute about being gay in Canada but debatingdykes.com said it best:

"Canada is very yay gay. We’re a haven for homosexuals and shock of all shocks, our society hasn’t crumbled. If you’re a fan of the same sex, you can get gay married, serve openly gay in the military, gay adopt a child, get gay divorced, gay buy a house together and gaily skip down the street without fear of retribution. 

I know there are a few other places where us queers can get all of those rights too. But when a country’s national symbol is the beaver, that’s really taking a “yay gay” stance to another level. Oh Canada indeed!"

Please take a minute to look at this iconic Canada beer commercial, especially my many American readers.   It just about says it all!

  2. I am so looking forward to my next visit to Canada. It will be my first as an out gay man. Knowing that I will be so welcome will be the icing on the cake!

  4. Thank you, everyone! I attended the evening Canada Day celebrations with my two daughters and their friends ending with some fireworks at midnight. Excellent!

    Mobs of people attended so I had a great time checking out the hot guys of all ages and trying (with some success, I think) to spot the gay guys and specially the M2M couples.

    I saw a mid-20s couple walking along, so in love (or in lust), kissing as they moved through the crowd. I thought, "Gosh, he has bigger boobs than she does!" followed quickly by the second thought, "OH...it's not a guy and a gal. They're two women kissing!" The couple certainly didn't seem to care who saw them and no one around them seemed to care either.

  6. Prous and rightfully so. Great way to express something we down in America know but are not willing to celebrate. Canada takes its place among the most progressive and prosperous countries on earth.

    Happy belated Canada Day
