Welcome to the IAGSDC
The IAGSDC supports gay and lesbian Modern Western Square Dance (MWSD) clubs worldwide, including the United States, Canada and Japan. Our organization was formed by and for lesbians and gay men and for their friends. You do not have to identify as gay or lesbian to dance with an IAGSDC club. Membership is open to all square dancers. All IAGSDC clubs dance the Callerlab specified levels of MWSD.

Change is coming to IAGSDC.ORG
It was announced last year that the IAGSDC website was running on a new server, and that there would soon be a new version of the site. As often happens in software development, the new site took a little longer to develop than anticipated, but there is now a launch plan.

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
