Montréal's search for the brightest star under the rainbow!

Queer Eye for the Straight Guy...been there, Queer as Folk...done that. Now it’s time to tell your story. In celebration of the diversity, individuality and pride within the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, Tourism Montreal has launched a global contest in search of “Queer of the Year” and the deadline to enter has been EXTENDED until July 22nd.

How can you stand out from the crowd?

Whether you’re a do-gooder, a diva, the average guy next door, a girl just out of the closet or anywhere in between, Montreal wants you to visit and show the world that you have what it takes! Participants are required to enter a one-minute video and submit applications explaining why they would be a perfect contestant. People will be judged on the following 5 criteria: personality, community involvement, sex appeal, healthy lifestyle and yes, even talent! The competition will be strong, so participants should rally Facebook friends, Twitter followers and family to vote for them.

All cheer for “Queer of the Year!”

At the end of Pride Week in August (9th - 15th), the finalist with the most public votes, combined with most points from the judges, will win the ultimate title of QUEER OF THE YEAR, a chance to take part in the Pride parade on Sunday, August 15th, and enjoy the Montreal VIP treatment on Monday, August 16th. Valued at approximately $4,000 CAD, the Montreal VIP treatment includes:
• Designer shopping spree with a personal stylist
• Spa pampering package
• Montreal gourmet dining experience
