History of the IAGSDC
The IAGSDC was formed in 1983 at a time when straight clubs did not permit gay and lesbian couples to join them in square dancing. It was a time when it was almost impossible to find a straight caller willing to call for a gay group. The Gay Callers Association was formed to fill the need for callers to call for gay clubs; and the IAGSDC was created to promote the activity for our gay and lesbian community. You can now read all about the first ten years of the IAGSDC in "Ten Years IAGSDC", available as a PDF. For more information, visit our history site
