I guess the best way to start off this blog post is to define the term allyship and it’s importance to the 2SLGBTQIA+ community. Why? Because amid a very busy Pride month I have born witness to a lot of performative allyship / marketing, extreme levels of hate towards our community, and have even had brand partners ask me to “tone it down” to avoid controversary.

For those of you who didn’t know, a few years ago my husband embarked on helping to find a multi-generational home with his mom and brother. Living in Toronto, it took some time, but with the help of an amazing real estate agent, they found a condo in the Jane & Eglinton area.

As you know by now, it’s no shock that whenever I get the chance to pack up the car and hit the road with Julio (and Canela), I take it. While I’m still manifesting (slash hunting for the right sponsors) for a cross country RV experience, I am left excited by weekends away in just a few hours in all directions from Ottawa. With my home city of Montréal only a short 1.5ish drive from home, we are taking advantage of the food, the hotels, and most of all – the experiences that you can only get in MTL this year. Let me tell you about one of the hottest events of the year and how you can enjoy it just like we are planning to!
