Argentina: Gay tourism growing in Buenos Aires
Monday, March 29, 2004 Posted: 1703 GMT (0103 HKT)

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) -- A pair of tango dancers moves awkwardly across the floor, laughing as they try to avoid stepping on one another's toes. As tango classics waft out of the sound system and a disco ball casts its refracted light, the pair is like any other learning a new dance -- except they're both men.

It's Wednesday night in Buenos Aires, and the country's only gay milonga is in full swing.

Goddess, a local gay club, began offering the milonga -- a tango dance party -- five months ago, around the time that organizers Roxana Gargano and Augusto Balizano began to notice an influx of gay tourists into Buenos Aires. It's the latest offering in a city that is fast becoming the hottest gay destination in South America.

Buenos Aires is in the midst of a tourism boom. The Argentine peso lost two-thirds of its value shortly after the country's 2001 economic collapse. Though bad for Argentines, that drop has been good for tourists, who are now flooding what was once the most expensive city in South America.

"Buenos Aires is New York or London at one-quarter of the price," said Ray de la Pena, who visited the city from Hawaii three times in 2003.

Indeed, more than 6.5 million tourists visited Buenos Aires in the first 11 months of 2003, a 38 percent increase over the same period in 2002, according to figures compiled by the Secretary of Economic Development.

In November, the most recent month for which figures are available, tourists spent more than $220 million in the city.

No figures exist on how many of those tourists are gay, but several signs point to a significant growth in their numbers.
