Twenty-two years of steady growth and expansion Divers/Cité has devoted its beliefs in presenting an arts and music festival that illustrates and celebrates the value of diversity in a spirit of sharing, solidarity and openness with the world. Divers/Cité originally comprised of three parts: the pride parade, the community fair and the arts and music festival. The organizing committee eventually moved forward with a vision to create two distinct public LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) events in Montréal: one event focused on community development and the other, a full-fledged arts and music festival. Divers/Cité is very proud to have produced for the past 14 years ‘Célébrations de la fierté LGBT de Montréal’, contributing to the evolution and strength of its movement.
The 2014 edition, from July 28 to August 3, Divers/Cité invites you to become one of the many tourists and local visitors who vibrate to the rhythm of the festival’s unique programming to discover a series of incredible outdoor and indoor events awaiting visitors in the Old Port of Montreal and elsewhere in the city!
As well as celebrating the annual return of La Grande Danse, one of North America’s largest outdoor House music demonstrations, the 2014 edition will be filled with many new surprises and also promises to be one of the greenest Divers/Cité ever, with the grand opening of its brand new stage on Bonsecours Island.
