Laid-back Gay Village Area

Church Street
(between Carlton and King)
Toronto, ON M4Y 2C8


Perhaps the most notable feature of this street is the number of gays and lesbians who feel comfortable making it their home away from home. From "the Steps" of Second Cup, where you can find people sitting during the summer, to such gay-friendly establishments as This Ain't the Rosedale Library, and Woody's, the street is a magnet for TO's gay community. Whether you are part of that culture or not, you will be sure to enjoy the varied shops and restaurants along this street, as well as the National Ballet and Buddies In Bad Times Theatre.
