Trends / LGBTQ

Canadians are famous for their hospitality and friendly demeanor, and the city of Regina is no exception. Travelers won’t find as vibrant an atmosphere or gay community in the small, Saskatchewan city, but will find it just as welcoming as any other area in Canada.

 

The LGBTQ+ scene in Regina is lacking, to say the least. However, one gay club has managed to find its footing in town. Q Nightclub and Lounge offers a laid-back atmosphere most evenings, but can see a party going every once in awhile. It offers stiff drinks and is the best place to meet up with locals and other travelers in Regina.

 

What the city lacks in gay-friendly amenities it more than makes up for with its rich cultural heritage and abundance of green spaces. The Royal Saskatchewan Museum was the first museum to open in the province and offers a unique view into the area’s natural history. The Life Sciences Gallery showcases the region’s biological diversity and beautiful prairie landscapes.

 

Regina also boasts fantastic historic districts. The Warehouse District in particular boasts an array of dining and shops housed in historic warehouses that once contained freight for the nearby rail. But the city’s greatest assets are its parks. As one of the greenest cities in Canada, Regina offers more outdoor leisure than most others. The Wascana Centre is the highlight, with 9.3 square kilometers in the center of town that surrounds Wasana Lake. It’s the fourth-largest urban park in Canada and larger than New York’s Central Park.

 

While you won’t find a thriving gay scene in Regina, the cultural heritage and friendly locales make it more than worth a visit.
