Gay Refugee first post in Argentina
Hey guys and gals
This is my first blog about life for gay men and women in Buenos Aires.
I have been living in Buenos Aires Argentina 18 months now and can tell you it has been a tremendous experience in many ways.
Life for gay men in the main is very good and tolerance amongst citizens of Buenos Aires called Portenos is high
Since 2002 there has been civil union here and President Kirchner is very supportive on gay issues.
Last year on worlds aid day The Obelisk one of the largest free structures in Buenos Aires was covered by a huge pink condom and got huge international attention.
I believe in 5 years time Buenos Aires will be in the top 3 gay destinations in the world and it is very apparent with the all new gay friendly places in town and gay hotels . Soon there will be the first 5 star gay hotel called Axel in the bohemian district of San Telmo.
Buenos Aires is changing rapidly and there is a ever increasing immigration from United States and Europe coming for the cheap housing and bohemian lifestyle.
Culturally Buenos Aires delivers in all facets . Its theatres and film industry is booming and the resurgence of former red light areas like Palermo Viejo to the trendy barrio it is today is nothing short of incredible.
I am here for the long haul and will keep you informed of my weekly aventures here
