Hot off the heels of becoming the first nation in Latin America to offer same-sex marriage rights to its gay citizens, Argentina announced another first -- the opening of a new center for LGBT visitors to the capital district, Buenos Aires.
Pink Point Buenos Aires is a "hetero-friendly" tourist information center for gay and lesbian travelers, providing information about the following in the capital district and all across Argentina.
- Gay and gay-friendly bars, restaurants, and accommodations;
- Gay travel agencies, saunas, beauty salons, health care centres, and arts and design boutiques.
Stop into Pink Point Buenos Aires early in your visit to help get yourself oriented to this sprawling city and huge country loaded with surprising options ranging from the breathtaking waterfalls at Iguazú to the Pampas, to the chilly southern tip of Tierra del Fuego, and much more.
The info center opened it doors September 2, 2010, but the grand opening is scheduled for November 5, 2010, which just happens to be the night before Gay Pride 2010.
