queer spaces outside the gay village

"Otherwise, Mile End and Mile Ex to its north have become somewhat of a secondary hangout for a younger, hipper population who identify more as queer than gay or lesbian. Neighbourhood bars like Le Ritz and Notre Dame des Quilles play host to mixed crowds of gay, lesbian, trans and queer folk, including dance parties some (if not most) weekends." - Tim Forster, in Eater's great article Montreal's Best LGBTQ Bars and Hangouts
