GPS Carlos Melia Buenos Aires Where the GAYS GO ?

GPS Carlos Melia Buenos Aires were the GAYS GO ?  |  Buenos Aires, Argentina  |  Hi there everyone… back, once again in Buenos Aires. Yes despite of the ongoing crisis, the expropriations, and else… I am back in my native and beloved land to spend the whole month catching up with new trends and travel news on this side of the world. Since I arrived, the main question, which has been going around my head, reinforced by my local and expat friends living here, is…. What happened to the Gay Night Scene, where did it go ? Where are the gays ? (BTW the photo above is one of my favorite corners in Buenos Aires. The intersection between Alvear Avenue and Montevideo. Wonder why they call it the “Paris of the South” although I fully disagree… To me it looks more like Madrid or some bits of New York.) Now going back to the main subject of this post… can anyone tell me whats going on ? Where should a Gay Traveler on holidays in the city for a week, go at night ? Because the rumors from friends, both locals and expats living in Buenos Aires, is that the gay night scene, has completely vanished. Some blame it to the online dating sites, others to the global crisis, and I personally blame it to the fact that Argentina has become so friendly and open, that in some ways grants the freedom to be anywhere, regardless if you are gay, lesbian, straight. Does this make any sense ? This is not a statement… it is an open question to those that have more information and can help tourists find a way to enjoy the city in a better way, mingle with locals and have fun. I am personally keeping and eye to the soon to be opened Beyond 5411, the first Martini Gay Club to open in the neighborhood of Recoleta in mid May 2012. Stay Tuned to this and other potential hints, that hopefully people will leave as comments on my Facebook Wall, about tips on Where the Gays Go in Buenos Aires ? Buenas Noches CM
