Skip navigation! We know two things to be true: there is no one way to express sexual identity , and there's no better way to gain insight than by cracking open a book. Seriously — there's a book for everyone , about all aspects of the queer identity. Affairs between princes and presidents' sons. YA novels about trans coming-of-age stories.
First loves remembered through a haze of memory , and first loves experienced with visceral immediacy and rendered in graphic novel form. Tours through the queer communities of Brooklyn in the s and the queer communities of America's heartland today. A graphic novel with major Killing Eve vibes. These books are worth celebrating, reading, and re-reading. Just be warned, this isn't particularly luxurious: the rooms are basic and you'll have to carry your suitcases up lots of staircases to reach it.

As a result, the gay nightlife of Buenos Aires goes on until the early hours of the next morning.

We strongly advise having a few hours siesta if you're planning to go out partying in Buenos Aires. We certainly did and felt better for it! The main gay cafe of Buenos Aires is Pride in San Telmo — one of our favourite gay hangouts in what we think is the most exciting area of BA. What's the first thing you think about when you come to Buenos Aires other than Madonna's Evita? At its inception in the s, tango was originally danced between 2 men in the back alleys of Buenos Aires.
This is because there was a shortage of women at the time amongst the immigrant population.
Therefore, the men practised with each other. Sadly, since the late s, same sex tango dancing got lost in Buenos Aires… until , when queer tango milongas tango clubs set up, offering classes for the LGBT community.
The 2 best and most popular ones are:. Gazing into your partner's eyes, grasping his hands and allowing yourself to be guided by the tantalising music is one of the most sensual experiences one can have.

It's our favourite neighbourhood, always bursting with character, full of history, street art and has this terrific not-to-miss Sunday market. The cobblestone streets of the neighbourhood are lined with antique and souvenir sellers. Buskers and tango dancers perform on almost every other street corner , adding to the intensely colourful atmosphere. This is a definite must see in the city. We completely fell in love with it and are certain you will too.
A candlelit dinner while watching a tango show is one of the best memories we have of Buenos Aires. There are many places offering tango shows with dinner but our favourite is Madero Tango. The food is a delicious mix of Argentinian classics and the show is based on a story of the evolution of tango with some of the sexiest and most impressive dancers you've ever seen. The location is at the bottom end of the Puerto Madero neighbourhood, so you get some pretty stunning night views across the river when it's all lit up.
Also at the end of the show, the performers offer a dance class as part of the experience so you can learn the basic moves to show off back home.

This is where Evita's grave can be found along with many other incredibly dramatic and extravagant ones.
