What I think about gay males... hmmm... what is there to think? I'm pretty impartial and don't really care about a persons sexual orientation. I believe most of society thinks the same way, at least I hope that's the consensus.

2. I couldn't really advise you on this, but if I had to guess, I'd say Montreal or Toronto. And yes, you can get by very easily in Montreal only speaking english.

Well I'm not Canadian, but I felt compelled to answer your question anyway.
What I think about Gay males or gays in general? Well although I don't honestly believe in men with men and women with women, I have to honestly say that for me as a woman, one of the best friends I could ever have would be a gay male friend.
I find that gay male are more lively and down to earth and they are less likely to stab you in the back or betray you as what can happen with a female friend.
Some of the best days of my younger years were just hanging out in the Village of New York City with my gay friends, we used to have a blast and lots of laughters. Even though I miss those days and enjoyed their company, my only fault with the lifestyle is that it takes both male and female to reproduce and if God had intended for men to be with men and women to be with women he would have provided another way to reproduce oppose to needing the sperm cell of a male and the egg of a female.
Other than that, gay males (most of them) are just awesome friends to have.

I agree with above posts. I feel most Canadians don't care or mind much if someone's gay or not. Many ordinary Canadians will not go as far as to "celebrate other's diversity" like they do on TV or in the newspapers, but have a strong tendancy to have "live and let live" approach to life. In Canada I almost never hear people telling other people how they should live or what to believe. I have beliefs but for the most part keep personal about them.

Does that answer your first question?

Good place for English-speaking gay men?
Do you mean places to meet plenty of other like-minded individuals?

Toronto is famous for that and most definitely English. Though almost any major city west of Toronto will be English and still have gay communities, even if they are smaller than in Toronto. There's one English speaking city on the east coast that might be nice, Halifax Nova Scotia. Generally speaking the east coast has a weaker economy, but if you can find a nice job you might really enjoy it there.

Speaking as an American, I think many more people this day and age are tolerant of homosexuals. I am, and so are most people I know, including conservatives. It is a non-issue for me. If they do not affect my way of life, why should I care what two consenting adults do behind closed doors? And this is the attitude that most people I know in America take. We are not a bigoted nation, a few people speak the loudest, that is all.

I couldn't care less if someone is gay, all that matters to me is whether they are a good person or not.

Toronto and Vancouver are pretty comparable when it comes to gay friendliness, and are just as gay friendly if nor more than NYC. For example, gay marriage is legal not only in Toronto and Vancouver, but clear across Canada.

Probably neither would be noticeably more gay friendly than the other.

That's like asking would L.A. or Miami be better for people who want to see lots of sunshine year-round.

I think it depends on where you are in Canada. Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal and most of Canada should be pretty friendly. But I've had friends who ran into problems in Calgary.
