Sharing insights, ideas and Queer Tango events

Dear Reader

We wish you very happy 2015! May it be an amazing year filled with joy,  creative projects and lots of lovely Queer Tangos.

2014 has been a great year. We have enjoyed working on The Queer Tango Book very much and are looking forward to sharing the Book with you in 2015. We send our thanks to the all the dancers and artists who are a part of this book project. It will be a great publication.

At the website we continue our blog post series with Queer Tango Travel Tips. The destination is London. Ray Batchelor, co-editor of The Queer Tango Book is your guide to Queer Tango in London. We are also happy to share details about Tango Con*Fusión's Dreamtrip to LADY's TANGO Festival 2015 and Sasha Cagen's 7 days trip for women dancers. Both trips will take you to Buenos Aires. You may also consider going to one of the Queer Tango Festivals in Europe or register for the 1st Queer Tango Marathon in Oldenburg, Germany which takes place end of March 2015 (details below).
