Duro y Vio were among the global founders of Queer Tango. We founded Queer Tango Boston in 2008 and Queer Tango Wellington in 2009.
We participated in every Queer event we could find, to encourage the growth of the community.
We are happy that the Queer Tango scene is now very strong, and we have worked ourselves out of a job.
The archives of our work are below.

Queering the World’s Most Romantic Dance. Gay people grasp the magic of Argentine Tango – in Buenos Aires, Berlin, San Francisco, New York, Stockholm, New York, Boston, Portland, Wellington, México City…
Queer Tango is a global movement to create inclusive and diverse space for Argentine Tango dancers. This means celebrating gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender dancers.
This research note examines the unique possibilities that tango may create as it becomes queered, and identifies ways in which the extreme gender environment of traditional tango is already queer. I distinguish three layers of gender experience in tango: drag, object desire, and inhabitation of essence.
