Boston Contra: Fully Gender-Free

April 9th, 2022
There are currently four contra dance series in Boston: LCFD, BIDA, Concord Thursday, and Concord Monday Fundraisers. And all four are gender-free!

This has been a long time coming. Boston's gender-free contras started with JP's LCFD in 1988. BIDA discussions started in 2013 and we switched in 2017. Monday fundraisers have been Larks/Robins since before covid, and the Thursday dance is going gender-free as they restart.

Since I don't know what regular Concord Monday is planning for when they restart this may be a temporary situation. But it's an exciting milestone regardless!
