  MONTREAL GAY VILLAGE _ GO Montreal _ Discover Areas _ Gay Village
But in fact, it wasn’t until 1984 that the gay bars moved east en masse to the Centre-Sud area, and then it was mainly for financial reasons, as business-minded bar owners realized that the downtown core was becoming more expensive.
By 1985, there were barely any gay establishments left in the west end; some remained in the Red Light District, but the bulk of gay society was sipping drinks in what was now known as the Gay Village.
Today, queer establishments and events are sprinkled throughout the city, from the university clusters in the west of downtown to the underground dyke nightlife in Mile End to the charming cafés of Verdun.

  Less gay, Less village   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
But even as the gay village gains popularity as a mainstream destination, some of the factors driving that development are conspiring to make it less of a necessity for gays to live here, and many are abandoning the village to seek homes elsewhere in the city.
So that even as the gay village reflects a more mainstream appeal, it is also becoming less desired, or required, among its core: More and more gays are leaving the environs of the village for other areas of the city -- even taking up residence in the once unthinkable suburbs.
The land the village sits upon was once the estate of Alexander Wood, a gay merchant and magistrate who was involved in a sex scandal in 1810.
