About the Festival
Founded in 2007 by Mariana Docampo, Roxana Gargano and Augusto Balizano the annual International Queer Tango Festival of Buenos Aires attracts participants locally and internationally devoted to queer tango: teachers, producers, academics, musicians, dancers and students from all over the world.
The mission of the Festival is to dance tango without the restriction of fixed roles normally determined by gender. That’s why the event is not oriented exclusively to same-sex couples, but to a truly open tango community, encouraging new forms of expression within a living tradition of music and dance.
