The Queer Milonga is the result of a semester long collaboration between Professor of Dance Ann Cooper Albright’s “Queer Acts” class and Professor of Hispanic Studies Ana Cara’s “Tango: The Politics and Poetics of a National Icon,” and benefits from the involvement of conservatory students and faculty under the direction of Daniel Binelli, one of the world’s foremost bandoneón players.

The International QueerTango Festival is sponsored by Oberlin College’s Year of the Queer in conjunction with the Oberlin Center for Languages and Literatures and the Mary Goetze World Music Fund
