Gay Pride Buenos Aires
The LGBT Pride parade takes place in Buenos Aires every November, with music, dance and a parade.
The first march in 1992, led by Carlos Jáuregui, attracted 300 people, many wearing masks to conceal their identity. More than twenty five years later, Buenos Aires has become the LGBT destination of choice in Latin America and the annual Orgullo (pride) parade attracts more than 100,000 people from all over the world.
The event starts in front of Argentina’s “pink house”, the Casa Rosada governmental palace in Plaza de Mayo, with live music and a diversity fair before the parade heads to the National Congress building.
The city’s open-mindedness and cosmopolitan culture, together with Argentina’s pioneering equal marriage and gender identity laws have established Buenos Aires as the top destination for LGBT tourism in Latin America, and November is a great month to visit with the Asterisco film festival and the Queer Tango Festival also taking place in the city.

Recommended Hotels in Buenos Aires
The gay scene of Buenos Aires is quite spread out so your nearest hotel may be close to one district, but a taxi away from the next club. The main gay area is located predominantly in the large residential Palermo with a few places in trendy San Telmo and in the upscale Recoleta district.
