PHOTOS: LGBT Square Dancers Twirl Into San Francisco

The 30th Annual Convention of the International Association of Gay Square Dance Clubs kicked it up at Weave Your Heart in San Francisco.

The IAGSDC was formed when straight clubs didn't allow gay and lesbian couples to square dance. And it was almost impossible to find a straight caller, the person who directs the dancers by "calling" for the next step, willing to advocate for a gay group. So in 1983 the Gay Callers Association was formed to fill the need for callers to push for gay clubs; and the IAGSDC was created in 1983 to promote the pasttime. Three decades later, more than 1,170 gathered from all over the U.S., Canada, and beyond for the 30th annual convention of the IAGSDC. Check out their web site for more information and enjoy these photos from the convention on the following pages.
