Canada 150 and Quebec Getaway – @asianmapleleaf

Canada 150 and Quebec Getaway – @asianmapleleaf | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it

This year marks the 150th anniversary of Canada and we were fortunate enough to pass through Ottawa on July 1st to be part of the celebration. We arrived on the morning of Canada Day and the city was alive! There was a sea of people wearing red and white, eagerly waiting to kick off the festivities. I was traveling with a few of my friends, some of whom are Americans, and it was great to show off the Capital of Canada and for them to join in the celebration. Parliament Hill was packed so we decided to observe from the Gatineau side (in the Outaouais region of Quebec).

It's June 2017 and Pride Season is upon us... if you're making plans for how to enjoy something a bit off the beaten path this summer, consider a road trip or flight to Vermont this year.  It's by far one of the most LGBT-friendly states in the US, and for many, has become that special place in New England where their mix of kind and friendly people, natural beauty and outdoor recreation come together.  It's also where civil unions first became the law in 2000, with same sex marriage becoming law in 2009... well before it became a the law of the land in 2013.
