Argentine dance troupe Bocca Tango makes Dallas debut
Dance can be the most sensual of the performing arts. But when a
group as sexually charged as Bocca Tango comes into town, the mercury
can blow the top off the thermometer. TITAS continues its dance season
with the Dallas debut of this Argentine troupe, led by American Ballet
Theatre star Julio Bocca, who has been compared to Fred Astaire — only
gay and Latin. For 90 minutes, Bocca and his troupe of dancers and
musicians perform a program that captures the beauty — and the heat —
of the tango. The company delivers two performances this weekend.

What makes her
is that Charlotte
was a transves-
tite in a culture
that put homo-
sexuals in the
tion camps — and meeting the same fates — as
many Jews. Dallas native Doug Wright turned
Charlotte's story into the play "I Am My Own Wife/'
and along the way won the Pulitzer Prize for drama
and the Tony Award for best play. Gay Canadian actor
Damien Atkins stars in the one-man show, playing
Charlotte and 34 other characters in this local pre-
miere at the Dallas Theater Center.

Cowtown Rodeo breaks out of the gate
Bucking broncos, cowboys in starched shirts and
tight jeans, steer roping, men kissing, goats wearing
panties. Yup, must be the gay rodeo. This is the
Texas Gay Rodeo Association's 21st year showing
how adept gay men and women are at demonstrating
traditional cowboy skills, and the Cowtown Rodeo in
Fort Worth is the first of two rodeos the group spon-
sors each year. In addition to equestrian events (and
the requisite campy ones), the weekend includes
parties and mixers as well as an awards presentation
ceremony. Horse stalk check-in begins Thursday.
