Divers/Cité organized the first Montréal LGBT pride celebrations in 1993. From that point and until 2006, Divers/Cité was comprised of three parts: the pride parade, the community fair and the arts and music festival. Following welcomed and increasingly positively views towards LGBT peoples and communities within contemporary society and after analyzing on-site client research, Divers/Cité’s organizing committee moved forward with a vision to create two distinct public LGBT events in Montréal: one event concentrated on community development and the other, a full-fledged arts and music festival. Divers/Cité is very proud to have produced Célébrations de la fierté LGBT de Montréal for 14 years and as such contributed to the evolution and strength of the LGBT movement.
Twenty and going strong. All together different!
Divers/Cité is an event whose mission is to present an arts and music festival that illustrates and celebrates the value of diversity in a spirit of sharing, solidarity and openness with the world. Twenty years of constant growth and expansion have established Divers/Cité as an internationally recognized festival.
Most of the programming is outdoor! Our programming also follows set themes that cover a wide range of artistic tendencies that address widely varying audiences. The event proudly showcases modern dance, blues, jazz, pop, Latin, rock, world, funk, ambient, techno and electronic concerts, drag queen performances and an outdoor cinema. The twentieth edition, from July 30 to August 5, 2012, will offer more than 7 days of amazing and memorable performances.
