Buenos Aires….High on “LGBT” Bucket List

Buenos AiresBuenos Aires, often called the “gay mecca of Latin America”, has so much to offer the LGBT community.  To begin with, Argentina is, for the fourth consecutive year, one of the world’s preferred destinations for high-flying gay travelers. Argentina can also boast being the most advanced country regarding same sex marriage being the first country in Latin America (10th in the world) to legalize civil unions of same sex couples and to guarantee the spouses the same rights as a couple in a heterosexual marriage. Buenos AiresBut Argentina can claim to be the first country in the world to allow transsexual people to legally change their gender without approval of either a judge or doctor.  Liberalization in the laws effecting gays and lesbians plus the recent devaluation of the Argentine Peso has prompted an interest in gay tourism and real estate investment particularly from the United States.

Recoleta, Barrio Norte, Palermo and San Telmo have a particularly gay feel plus offer a feeling of security as well.images-3  “Knowing that in Argentina you’re going to be welcome and your civil rights are going to be ensured has a lot to do with travellers’ desire to come to Argentina,” said Pablo de Luca director of the Argentine Chamber of Gay and Lesbian Commerce.

And one must take note that the “Paris of South America’s” Gay Pride Parade is held every year on the 1st Saturday of November to celebrate the first ever gay group in Buenos Aires in 1969.images
