I never had much opportunity to travel outside of my home country of the US, so recently when I was able to spend four days in the city of Montréal, Quebec, I was ecstatic. From what I heard, the city is a hub for arts, culture, food, and music, all of my favorite things.

Probably among the most underrepresented groups under the LGBTQ+ umbrella with our only major representation coming from Todd Chavez on BoJack Horseman (not a complaint, I love Todd).

Yes, we all love Michael Scott, Jim, Dwight, and pretty much the entire ensemble of The Office. With memorable moments, quotes, pranks, and even some tearjerking scenes, that show has become one of the biggest pop culture phenomenons in history.
