Gay Gordons London

Group profile

The Gay Gordons London was inaugurated on the 22nd October 2005 to offer Scottish Country Dancing to the LGBTQIA community and their friends. Together with Gay Gordons Edinburgh and Gay Gordons Manchester, we affiliated to the Royal Society of Scottish Country Dancing in 2012.

Our main activities are a weekly class with an annual dance both in central London and an annual residential course somewhere in the UK. We encourage our participants to join in other Scottish dance events in London and many members also travel to Edinburgh and Manchester a few times each year.

We offer a warm welcome to everyone. If you come to one of our classes or events just be happy to dance with everyone - man with man, woman with woman, or man with woman. Don’t worry if you can’t bring a smile with you, we hope to send you home with one.

We dance at – or organise dances for – charity events (Prides and AIDS/HIV related groups are the people who ask us most often). We also keep the group solvent by running ceilidhs for parties, civil ceremonies and weddings and giving the occasional cabaret performances. The more people who are dancing, the happier we are!

The Gay Gordons – where everyone can dance with anyone.
