Queer Country Social
3rd Saturdays + extra dates here and there • 7-11 pm • Fall-Spring

Join a bunch of smiling queer (LGBTQA+S*) folks (and friends) socializing, dancing, and learning two-step, west (and east) coast swing, waltz, line dances, cha-cha, and more to contemporary country, r&b, and pop music. All for a suggested cover of $15 (includes the lessons, $10 for GFP members).

No partner? No sweat.
Just come on by and there will be lots of partners to swing (or be swung) by 3 minutes at a time. Everyone is welcome.

No experience? Don’t you fret none, we’ll learn ya.
We all started at these dances stumbling through the basics and knowing how scary learning something new is. There will be people just learning as well as seasoned veterans. You’ll not be alone or without support.

Social dancing? A dance where you can be all social-like. 🙂
Our DJ of the day will play all sorts of music from contemporary country, r&b, to pop music that you can two-step, line dance, west coast swing, east coast swing, waltz, and more. If you have a favorite line dance, just ask the DJ. If we have it, we’ll work it into the rotation. (if we don’t we’ll see about getting it)

A bunch of us usually head over to JP Licks after for ice cream.

FYI, This is a nonalcoholic venue (’cause it’s a church, y’all).

Admission: $15 suggested sliding donation ($10 GFP member – Membership helps us gather money at the beginning of the season to pay for dance hall rental and gives you a discount for the rest of the year!)

Location: First Church in Jamaica Plain Unitarian Universalist • 6 Eliot Street, Jamaica Plain, MA (side entrance of church across from The Footlight Club).
