My four-and-half-year stint in Buenos Aires has finally come full circle more than four years later...I think.
Maybe it's half circle, for I'm back where I started a few years after my arrival in BA...but not quite. For a time while I was living there I wrote the Gay & Lesbian section in Time Out Buenos Aires's quarterly magazine, which was called Visitors at the time. Now, some six years later, I'm its main feature, the front page story...of the Gay & Lesbian section, not the Time Out Buenos Aires magazine.
Fun fact: Some of my editorial touches, remain, like this one, under "INFORMATION AND SAFETY":
"A word from the wise to the horny: male prostitutes (taxi boys, as they’re known in BA) continue to be an unavoidable – and illegal – fact of the city’s nightlife. So if you’re not leaving alone, choose your post-club escort carefully. Now get out and have fun!"
Mine, all mine.
The Q&A to the left represents a major accomplishment for me. It's more than a very nice plug for my book Is It True What They Say About Black Men?: Tales of Love, Lust and Language Barriers on the Other Side of the World. It's also a sort of coming home. Now if only I could get Time Out Melbourne and Time Out Bangkok on board, it would be the perfect threesome!
