Is there something in the water in Latin America? Last week Argentina legalized same-sex marriage, but look what happened on Brazilian TV! Two male dancers did a tango together and gave it a little extra somethin'-somethin' at the end. (Hat tip to BoyCulture)

That wasn't really a tango. That was a contemporary apache dance set to tango music.

But it was well executed and the couple was very cute. The crowd sure liked them and good for them.
A tango, actually would have been a LOT sexier and tighter and intimate that this particular choreography.
And same sex tango isn't that unusual, and it's accepted anyway. Don't know about Brazil, but certainly in Argentina.
Which just passed marriage equality.

Two things:

(1) I love how the little girls go wild over this.

(2) The backstage host is kinda hot.


I loved the dance. Doesnt matter to me tango or not. The crowd loved them. Seems like the judges did as well--even though i didnt understand 99% of Portuguese. But, for what its worth, both deserve all the praise for stepping out and being themselves: talented and daring. YES!
