Queer Tango is about breaking boundaries

Boundaries of sexuality; of gender; of heteronormative  roles. It’s a way for Argentine Tango to embrace members of the LGBT community, and it also offers opportunities for all dancers to straighten their skills by studying both roles.

Leader/follower role reversal can help us to grow as dancers. It can help us to better understand our partners’ needs, learn to listen better, communicate with more strength, and be more empathetic to the unique challenges faced in the other role by putting ourselves in our partners’ shoes.
