WELCOME EVERY BODY!
Come and celebrate with us 11 years of Queer Tango!
The International Queer Tango Festival Hamburg has taken place annually since the year 2000. Nothing comparable existed worldwide before this festival was established. The festival was and is meant to be a tangohome for woman/woman, man/man and woman/man dancing couples that goes beyond the usual images and clichés.
Queer doesn't only stand for the dazzling variety of questions related to sex and gender. Queer theory gave important impulses to open tango to more possibilities. More about this under backgrounds.
Meanwhile the idea of Queer Tango has been going round the world: Stockholm, Buenos Aires, Oslo, San Francisco, New York City, Mexico City, Paris, Copenhagen, Berlin, Cologne ? You can find contacts to this and more international Queer Tango addresses under links.
Your positive response made the festival what it is today. A highlight of the year for queer tango dancers.
We are looking forward to seeing you and offering you again a forum for inspiring exchange, interesting contacts and joyful entertainment!
