Dear Reader,

The Queer Tango Conversation (our group on facebook; founded in 2015) is thriving in FB cyberspace.

Do feel welcome to post your questions, comments and observations on the wall of The Queer Tango Conversation. We do our best to keep this space which is dedicated to conversations about Queer Tango, open role tango and related topics. strictly commercial free and non-promotional.
