Sharing insights, ideas and Queer Tango events

Dear Reader

This month we have edited the format of The Queer Tango Project's website, highlighting our blog and all the Queer Tango videos which we share.

Tango Queer en Español. We have also created a new section in Spanish: Tango Queer en Español - see the menu bar at our website - thus we are turning the website 'bilingual' with parallel, independent activities – that is same functions, but without that content invariably be mirrored by translation into ‘the other language’, which ever that is. Each language has a life of its own on the website. Olaya Aramo (Madrid) will be editing posts in Spanish. She will be happy to have somebody help her as a co-editor or guest writer.

If those of us working in one language spot something which ought to be shared with those speaking the other language, we will organise for pieces of news to be translated and published in both languages.
