name is Guillermo R. Etchevers. I'm 28 years old. I was born in the Recoleta

I ´m a lawyer. I got my degree in Law at

was 19 years old. I also did a fellowship in a Tax Law Firm in 2000.
The success of this site, made me quit my morning job in the Judiciary in
December 2003. So now I´m dedicating full time to run and update
Buenos Aires Gay
Guide, to reply all the emails from visitors, to give the Neighborhood
Private Walking, Night and Shopping Tours, and to help people get an
apartment for rent during their visit.
A gay travel guide Buenos Aires: The idea.
The idea of creating this site came to me after a funny incident during
my 2003 summer holyday in Madrid, Spain.
It was my first night in Madrid, first time in this city. I had checked
out a gay online website to know the gay places to go out. There was a
nightclub called Heaven. I heard about a London nightclub called Heaven, and
decided with my boyfriend to try it.
We went to this supposed to be "gay nightclub", but when we were
already inside, about 10 minutes after arriving, we realized that this
wasn't anymore a gay club... My boyfriend needed more time to figure it out.
He wanted to kiss me there, and said: " I think this is not gay...".
I knew after that Heaven was no more a gay club, the online guide was out
to date, now it was a Gothic nightclub.
When I came back to Buenos Aires, I realized that we didn't have a good
and updated online guide for foreign gay visitors. Seven years partying
around the gay scene in Buenos Aires each weekend gave me some authority in
the matter. So I realized I had, as a gay local, useful information that I
could share with foreign visitors to Buenos Aires. I saw a need and no one
was serving it.
Because I was applying for a Fellowship to study 6 months in Barcelona,
Spain, I wasn't sure if I would have time to dedicate to the site, I did not
get the fellowship. At the end, it was a good thing, because the site grew a
lot, and it has become a great success.
From a bad experience to being the main online source for Buenos Aires
travelers... It has been a long way and lots of responsibilities. I ´m
giving all my best efforts to provide the best service, the service you
deserve, the service I would like to get when I travel: friendly service,
prompt replies to your mail, the best local advice so you get a better and
more local experience of Buenos Aires.
We are here, to help and serve you. Our main objective, is that you
became a lover of Buenos Aires city.
