Montreal’s Gay Pride celebration is always one of the most anticipated. But this year organizers have added a unique twist that pushes the envelop of the increasing number of cities, big and small, vying for the gay visitor dollar.

The finalist with the most public votes combined with the most points from the judges will win the title and Montreal VIP treatment valued at $4,000. Check back to discover the winner…
