Windsor-Essex is a unique and special one that has all the amenities you could ask for and is also the most socially 
progressive. This is apparent in our local businesses, friendly and welcoming people and  vibrant LGBTQ2S+ community.

The Come OUT & Play Guide has been at the forefront of the Windsor-Essex LGBTQ2S+ scene for the past 8 years. By 
maintaining our strong community presence, the Come OUT & Play Guide has become the premier choice for 
businesses and organizations looking to reach not only the Windsor-Essex LGBTQ2S+ consumers but LGBTQ2S+ travelers from Michigan, Ohio and across Ontario.

Now celebrating its 9th year of publication, we invite you to be a part of the Come Out & Play Guide, our area’s hottest and best publication to reach savvy LGBTQ2S+ residents and travelers. The guide is an important resource for the 
Windsor-Essex region, from shopping to service organizations, from nightlife to health & wellness, from counselling to spas, from arts/theatre to restaurants, the Come OUT & Play Guide has it all!


We will be distributing 10,000 digest-sized full colour glossy guides and we mind where every copy is distributed to make sure it ends up in quality hands and is not a wasted exposure. We ensure that someone picking up this publication is a local LGBTQ2S+ resident or out-of-town traveller from either and that this presents a new business relationship opportunity for our area and advertisers. Thus, we have a two-pronged distribution method:

IN TOWN DISTRIBUTION                                              

▪ All Participating Advertisers (based on 2020, (63 locations)

▪ Provincial Tourism Office (Downtown Windsor)

▪ Tourism Windsor-Essex kiosk (Downtown)

OUT-OF-TOWN DISTRIBUTION

The Come OUT & Play Guide will also be supported online with a business directory complete with pictures, description and contact information. A printed version will also be available at the 2021 Windsor-Essex Pride Fest.
