The Gay Gordons London was inaugurated on the 22nd October 2005 to offer Scottish Country Dancing to the LGBTQIA community and their friends.

We are a co-operative run by a steering group, and we encourage our members to take part in organinsing events whether it be a social, a picnic in the park, a dance or a ceilidh.

We offer a warm welcome to everyone. All we ask is that if you come to one of our classes or our Annual Dance & Ceilidhs, that you are happy to dance with everyone, be it man with man, woman with woman, or man with woman. We dance together and being non gender specific we use the terms 'Leader' and 'Follower'.

The Gay Gordons London have given demonstrations in London, Brighton, Truro, Ediburgh, Belfast and in Rome.

Many of these are in Pride Parades and events for the LGBTQIA community.

We have given a number of performances at the Gay Ceilidhs in the Assembly Rooms Edinburgh, as well as at our own Ceilidhs, and at our Dance Weeks.

We have performed at The Harpenden Highland Gathering, the Walk for Life, and at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern, on stage at DUCKIE!

We reflect the international nature of Scottish Country Dancing and have members from England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Denmark, Germany, The Netherlands, Greece, Slovenia, the USA and Canada.

You don't have to be Scottish!

We maintain strong links with the Gay Gordons branches in Manchester and in Edinburgh.

In 2012, Gay Gordons London, together with Gay Gordons Edinburgh and Gay Gordons Manchester, were affiliated to the Royal Society of Scottish Country Dancing (RSCDS).
