The QUEERSTORY Tour recalls the days when Montréal's LGBTQ2+ establishments were located in the west-end of downtown. Through true stories (we name names!) of struggle and triumph, we remember the horrible and the fabulous history of Montréal's queer people and institutions. You'll hear about the bars, the police raids, the parties, the cruising, the protests, the lives lost and the battles won that paved the way to today.

One of the best tours we have taken anywhere!
longostein, 17-10-2022
This is one of the best tours we have taken (and we have taken many through Viator)! Thom is so knowledgeable and so passionate about the history and important people of the LGBTQIA++ community in Montreal (and the world) and is able to convey that knowledge with enthusiasm. He has done research and interviews with some of the key participants over the years and is able to share what made these people stand up and lead, along with insights into their personalities. My wife, son and I found the tour fascinating and entertaining. Whether you have a particular interest in this topic or just want a more unique view of Montreal, I highly recommend you take this tour.
Queerstory tour review

Besides of being captivating and having the most adorable dog ever (love u jinkx), Thom gave an amazing tour about the Queer history of Montreal.
I learnt a lot and I'll do my best to pay ot forward!
Informative, unexpected, fabulous LGBTQ+ Montreal
Kelsycc, 21-07-2022
LGBTQ+ culture in Montreal is familiar in Le Village and Mile End -- so this Queerstory tour around Downtown was an unexpected and fabulous education! I very much appreciated a new exploration of the community's deeper roots, and how the tour represents each letter of the LGBTQIA2+ acronym.
Guide/tour owner Thom has done incredible research and interviews to represent the details about queer Montreal today, in the late 20th century, and all the way back to the early settlers. I was totally enthralled throughout the tour, and feel like I got a new, more historic perspective on LGBTQ+ Montreal.
Moving Forward with Pride Life!

How so many individuals, currently and past, have made life easier for LGBTQ+ today and Thom explained that history beautifully and thoroughly.
Great way to have a new perspective of the city

I’ve been living in Montreal for 7 months and this was my first walking tour. It was a really nice and emotional experience visiting the main queer historical spots of the city.
It gave me a new perspective of the city and places I’ve walked by so often.
The knowledge and passion of Thom, the tour guide, make this tour a must.
100% recommendable for visitors and locals.
