Queer Tango at the 2014 Gay Games

Winter & Auriel of QueerTango San Francisco write:
“Queer tango has been around and growing for some 12 years now, and for the very first time in 2014, the Gay Games will include in the Dancesport division, an Argentine tango competition. A lot of outreach was done in developing the rules for this competition both within the queer tango world and in the straight tango world, in an effort to create a competition that could be taken seriously by any tango aficionado and would still reflect Argentine tango as it is danced on the social dance floor in the queer tango world. QueerTango San Francisco volunteered to post the rules on our website for everyone who is interested to see.”
