A free social event to celebrate the whole rainbow community- come one come all! 

The LGBTI+ Elders Social Dance Club is a welcoming space for the whole rainbow community to come together to share stories and meet new people. Lyth Arts Centre are excited to host our second pop-up dance club for LGBTI+ Elders here in Caithness and North Sutherland.

The events were started in Melbourne, Australia as a way to celebrate a generation discriminated against for years and who, according to recent findings, fear having to ‘return to the closet’ as they get older. Now in their first year in Scotland, the Social Dance Clubs provide an opportunity to get to know other members of the LGBTI+ community, join the dancing, or just enjoy the music and conversation. Catering is provided.

Advance booking is not required, you can just turn up at the session if you prefer.

Date: Sunday 29 September, 2019
Time: 3:00pm – 5:00pm
Location: Lyth Arts Centre, Lyth, Wick, KW1 4UD

The Social Dance Clubs will culminate in The Coming Back Out Ball, a spectacular social event happening in Spring 2020. Social Dance Clubs are free and run monthly on a Sunday in Glasgow and Inverness from May 2019, with special pop-ups like this event across the country.
