It’s a curling tournament! In fact Ottawa is coming to the table pretty late as the seventh Canadian city to host an all-gay bonspiel, but they are going to start their own tradition this weekend.

For readers interested in attending, the public is invited to watch the tournament and attend the parties, all of which are happening this weekend in Ottawa, Ontario. Check the Rainbow Rockers site for more information.
