Let's head to Church--Street that is. The Church Wellesley Gay Village is world famous for its homo-rific nightlife, inclusive community center and fabulous restaurants. You might also recognize many hot-spots from the television show "Queer as Folk," which was filmed in the area for the five years it aired on Showtime. Legend has it the area was bought way back in the s by a gay merchant named Alexander Wood. LGBT-ers have since made this district into quite a lovely home of which Wood could only be proud. And Toronto is one of the few cities that has two gay villages. The Queer West Village is edgier with funky restaurants and a number of queerish mixed bars.
