Puerta Abierta pensioners' centre

Gay retirement home founded by the first lesbian couple to marry in Argentina.

When Norma Castillo and Ramona “Cachita” Arévalo met in Colombia in 1977 they were both married to men, and they didn't even know what lesbianism was. Many years passed before they made their relationship official. They returned to Argentina together and became active campaigners for gay rights.

After more than 30 years together, they became the first lesbian couple to marry in Argentina. Their battle for visibility is now embodied in Puerta Abierta, the first LGBT centre for pensioners in Latin America. At the centre, they give talks, therapy, and organise trips, dances and birthday parties.
