Buenos Aires Diversa Festival

Art, business, sport and interventions throughout the city at Buenos Aires' biggest LGBTQ festival. August 14 - 19.
From August 14 to 19, Buenos Aires celebrates its LGBTIQ communities with a packed week of cultural and business activities. The festival Buenos Aires Diversa takes place at venues throughout the city, with artistic interventions, promotions at bars and restaurants, and business talks at the 10th GNetwork360 International Conference on LGBTIQ Business and Tourism.
 
Now in it's third edition, the festival has become an annual fixture in Buenos Aires, which is the number one destination in Latin America for LGBTIQ travellers thanks to its progressive legislation and packed cultural agenda. Other LGBTQ events in the city include the international film festival Asterisco, the queer tango festival and the LGBTIQ Pride Parade.
