    Labour day week-end at Unity.

    The weekend is Labor Day and for several years it has been one of the busiest week-end of the year at Unity. It represents the transition between summer and fall and this it’s the last weekend before officially going back to school. Also, it lasts 3 days.

    Each year we pay particular attention to events that we present on that weekend.

    Friday, College Night takes all its senses prior to your return to school. In the main room, Miss Shelton will make you dance and forget all about your class plan. In the bamboo bar, DJ Vantasy takes care of the music and specials are offered by presenting your freshly printed student card.


    Saturday Poplife will feature Angel and her flashmob in a special performance: Sorry for party rockin ‘. Yvan Benoit will be the DJ in the main room and DJ Stally welcomes you in the bamboo bar.

    Do not forget a visit on the terrace to enjoy the last warm evenings of the year.

    I like cupcakes!

    A cupcake is a small individual cake, baked in a pan and covered with paper, decorated with colored icing and other eye-catching decorations.

    Nobody is really sure of the origin of the cupcake, but the term was used for the first time in 1828 in the book of recipe Seventy-Five Receipts for Pastry, Cakes and sweetmeats written by Eliza Leslie.

    Popular in the 50s, the cupcake has lost its appeal until early 2000 when it appeared in the television series Sex and the City. Since then, the cake has become a trend.

    Sex and the city


    Several shops in Montreal bake and sell cupcakes. Our favorite is the shop is Itsi Bitsi, located on Notre-Dame West, near metro Lionel-Groulx.

    What are the favorite cities of the LGBT community throughout the world?

    The second most popular destination is Sydney, Australia and the third is Rio de Janeiro.
