Itinerary

Explore Argentina’s LGBTQ+ history

Join actor Santi to unravel the journey of South America’s Queer-friendly country in a tour full of history, art and grit. Argentina is a country where same sex marriage is legal, where people can legally be non-binary and where all people, regardless of whom they love or how they express themselves, can adopt children.

On this tour, you’ll learn about the intersectional fight that is shaking the very foundations of this heavily Catholic country, and about Argentina’s relationship with non-conforming identities, from pre-colonial times to modernity. Enjoy emblematic landmarks such as the National Congress or the Rose Garden while you learn about Evita Perón, a gay ally and icon. And an actual President handing over transgender national ID documents and more!

Join us to discover the journey of a country that is learning to embrace the beauty of diversity.

    Mariana was awesome!  She did an incredible job showing us around Argentina, the culture, the Pride community support, the history, etc. and we ended with a drag performance which was phenomenal.
