Every 3rd Saturday of the month, Abrazo the virtual queer milonga.
What is possible at a virtual event, so much my darling:

Invocation by Jurn to enter the evening together.
DJ Mackerlmint is preparing a Halloween playlist, and of course we will have our birthday vals, the alternative tango correspondent and Halloween suprises!
And on that note, somebody in this organization claims that all events in the month of October are automatically Halloween parties, and by dint of contagious enthusiasm our October milonga has been gradually transformed into a Halloween milonga. Although by no means required, costumes are warmly encouraged, and at least one zoom window will be graced by a visiting jack-o-lantern.
Wherever you are in the world we welcome you. Note your time zone.
Zoom is where it's happening:
