What is the GCA?

The purpose of the GCA is to promote the development of gay callers and to promote square dance, round dance, and western dance as a recreational activity, provide mutual support among members, and to further the education, interest and participation of the members in the art without prejudice to gender, sexual orientation, ethnic background, age, race, or belief.

The Gay Callers Association (GCA) is an international organization consisting of individuals who participate in and promote gay and lesbian square dance activities.

Membership in the GCA is open to everyone, regardless of age, race, gender, religion, ethnic background, or sexual orientation. The GCA consists of experienced and beginning callers, class instructors, and other professionals who promote square dance activities in the gay and lesbian community.

The GCA sponsors a caller school which is held in conjunction with the annual IAGSDC convention. The GCA also maintains a directory of members who call during the IAGSDC convention and at various square dance events throughout the year.

The GCA annual membership meeting is held during each annual IAGSDC Convention. The members present elect executive board to serve a two-year term.

The GCA produces a quarterly publication, The Call Sheet, which keeps members updated with current topics in the square dance community.
