The land of hot pink bus stops and trash cans is getting hotter.

Vancouver's West End is home to the Davie Village, the city's gayborhood. How does one ascertain the gayness of this part of town? Just sashay down Davie Street and you'll see all the transit stops and public garbage cans are painted hot pink. I guess pink is the new street furniture!

The West End is also home to Celebrities, Vancouver's biggest gay bar. And on March 6, it's the place where Vancouver's Next Gay Top Model will be crowned:

Vancouver's Next Gay Top Model plays off the format of the popular TV show of (nearly) the same name and offers a strong altruistic element as it will lend financial support to Friends for Life, one of Vancouver's organizations in support of people living with AIDS.

The competition started up for contestants back in January and on March 6 at Celebrities, the winner will be unveiled to the masses. Tickets for the event are available to anyone and everyone, and the best part is that this entire event is all staged in support of Vancouver's Friends for Life society. Here's what they're all about:
The Vancouver Friends For Life Society serves as a catalyst to enhance the wellness of individuals living with a life threatening illness by providing complementary and alternative health and support services.

Click here to meet the 12 finalists - you'll get a nice, big photo of each hottie, their personal bio and a short video, too.

You can get tix thru Little Sisters bookstore - grab 'em here.

What can we say, but good luck to all the Vancouver's Next Gay Top Model contestants and thanks to the organizers for using such a fun template to raise money for one of Vancouver's most-deserving charitable organizations.
