Gay Buenos Aires
The International LGBTQ+ Travel Association > Home
Any advice for a couple of young lesbians travelling to BA? There's heaps of info for the boys, but little for the girls I did a search on this a while back for a friend, and came up with gay Spanish classes and gay tango classes, that looked like they were for both men and women. Have you done a web search at all? I also haven't seen too much information for lesbians but I know that Buenos Aires gets it's fair share of lesbian travelers as well. We have several gay and lesbian travelers each year and they all tell me it's wonderful.

Some are magnificent and beautiful, others are very obviously abandoned. The common areas of the cemetery are kept in great condition for visiting families and tourists. They even have little street signs to help people find their way, bathrooms, and benches like any other public space. Which means you see the occasional shabby, forgotten crypt because some family lines have died out.
That Buenos Aires would be chosen for such a marketing experiment is a result of a marked change over the past several years in the acceptance of gay men and lesbians in Argentine society. This city of three million people has come a long way from the years of military dictatorship, when being openly gay could lead to jail. Five years ago this was the first major Latin American city to legalize same-sex unions, and this summer it was host to a World Cup for gay soccer players, a first in the region.
