There are some differences in culture and customs between straight and gay square dance groups. Callers who have never called for a gay group before often have questions about what those differences are, and what they should expect. This paper was actually written in 1995, but it still provides many valuable insights into what to expect from gay square dance groups. However, over the past 20 years there has been a lot of social evolution and much more intermixing of the gay and straight square dance communities. Callers working with gay groups today will find the differences less marked than they used to be. And there are many more callers who call for gay groups so it is easier find someone to advise you. If you know nobody in your area try contacting the Gay Callers Association (http://gaycallers.org)
