Since its inception, our tango gave rise to the scandal. Associated with prostitutes, its origins had nothing to do with sophisticated tango that then arrived in Paris and went around the world. Always linked to our deepest tradition, tango today has a new return, very commensurate with the times that run: queer tango .
Hand in hand with the explosion of feminist and LGBT movements, queer tango comes to break stereotypes: it comes to eradicate machismo from this dance. Mariana Docampo, writer, teacher of tango and literature, is a pioneer of the movement in Argentina . Carry on the Milonga Tango Queer . This is how they are presented:
Tango Queer is a meeting place, socialization, learning and practice open to all people, and in which it seeks to explore different forms of communication between those who dance.
Tango Queer does not presuppose the sexual orientation of those who dance, or their taste for occupying one role or another when it comes to tango dancing.
The proposal is to dance tango without the roles being fixed to the sex of those who dance it.
Created in 2005, in this space of “liberado” tango there are festivals and cultural activities during the year. In addition, the space is part of the organization of the International Festival of Tango Queer in Buenos Aires, which has been held since 2006.
The proposal is, then, not to stick to gender roles. You can choose the desired pair and assume the preferred role. They have no impact on gender or sexual orientation. The driver can be male or female, can be homosexual, bisexual, heterosexual, or whatever. There are no rules, just dance. There are no patterns, just chords. After all, tango is music, music is art. And art is freedom.
