Montreal's Queer of the Year contestants compete to become human poutine
It's taken a while but poutine has slowly been making its way on to menus across the nation and has steadily been increasing its presence in Vancouver over the past few years.
But do you consider the Quebec snack food sexy?
No? Well, what if you add some beefcake to the recipe? Kind of queer?
Well, in this case, that's exactly the point.
It's Tourisme Montréal's third annual Queer of the Year contest and one of this year's challenges included getting drenched in gravy to become human poutine. (Cheese, please.)
Check it out.
Other challenges included getting literally catty on the catwalk (by working the runway with cats), a Céline Dion homage, and a bondage bonding moment.
The contest was held during Montreal Pride Week (August 11 to 19), and entrants were evaluated on the basis of personality, talent, healthy lifestyle, community spirit, and sex appeal. Five finalists were chosen from Connecticut, Toronto, Brooklyn, Australia (by way of Los Angeles), and Manhattan.
Who do you think should be crowned Queer of the Year (and receive $5,000 in cash)? You have until August 28 to cast your vote.
Bonne chance to all the contestants, fromage and all. It's quite literally all gravy.
