Buenos Aires Wide Open To Gays

Vacation seeking homos may want to check out Buenos Aires. Aside from being one of the world’s most spectacular, vibrant cities – and housing Eva Perón’s grave – the Argentinian town’s announced some “friendly” discounts for the gays. Via Gay News Watch:

Buenos Aires this week introduced a special discount card exclusively for use by gay tourists, almost 1 million of whom visit the Argentinian capital annually. The “Friendly Card” is in response to the fact that between 10 to 15 percent of the tourists to Buenos Aires are gay, and can now save between $50 and 200 by using the card at participating restaurants, hotels and other gay-friendly businesses, including emergency medical aid, attorneys’ offices and cell phone rental for use during a visit to B.A.

No crying here…

      So you’re gonna carry around a card that says you’re gay, tell the government and then present this card to shopkeepers and emergency medical services (!), even if it is only “gay-friendly” organizations. I don’t know about you but I certainly wouldn’t be comfortable doing this in the States. Perhaps it’s different in Buenos Aires though…

      Why not just wear a pink triangle on your shirt all the time? It would be much less of a hassle than having to go through your wallet every time to search for the card.

      I find this kind of patronizing.
