gay footballers muscle in on the macho scene

Queer tango is one thing, but gay soccer? In Buenos Aires, football is the purest expression of this culture's classic machismo and all that goes with it, whether that's getting away with cheating your opponent a-la Maradona's 'hand of God' or getting into knife fights with opposing fans after matches. But this weekend gay soccer hits Latin America for the first time with the Gay Soccer World Cup to begin in Buenos Aires, opening with a party at a local disco on Sunday night. 23 cities throughout the world are represented by gay and lesbian teams. The Mexican team is fighting it out without the support of their national association, but Argentina's Soccer Association is behind this event. It will be interesting to see what you're average Argentine football fan makes of it.
