Vancouver Selfie Spots for Gay Travellers

Gay photographer Randall Shirley set out to capture several of Vancouver’s gay-interest spots. A selfie at any of them could be a great way to say: look where I am!

His lens selected these iconic spots:

1. Permanent rainbow crosswalks are at the heart of Davie Village, intersection of Davie and Bute streets.

2. Vancouver AIDS Memorial, a ribbon of steel set into the hill at Sunset Beach, west of the intersection of Beach Avenue and Broughton Street.

4. Digital Orca by Douglas Coupland, artist and writer (Generation X), one of Vancouver’s most prolific and recognized gay citizens. The installment stands on the northern plaza of the Vancouver Convention Centre. (Picture)

6. Wreck Beach is among the world’s most-famous and popular legal nude beaches.
