All About Us

What is Southern Country Charlotte all about?

Our Mission is to support local charities and lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender events while promoting country and western music and dance

How did Southern Country Charlotte begin?

Southern Country Charlotte was founded in 1991 by a small group of people with a common interest in promoting country western music and dance in Charlotte 's GLBT community. As the club's contributions to the community increased, Southern Country Charlotte was established as a non-profit organization.

The club continued to grow and became a member of the International Association of Gay and Lesbian Country Western Dance Clubs (IAGLCWDC) which coordinates the activities of its member clubs and serves as a central source of information about the gay and lesbian country western dance scene.

How does Southern Country Charlotte accomplish its mission?

The membership of SCC plan and participate in fund raisers such as raffles, barn dances, and periodic hoedowns as well as donation drives to solicit goods specifically targeted for area organizations.  Over the years SCC has contributed almost $100,000 in cash, goods and services to local charities. The charities chosen by our general membership through the years have included:

SCC promotes fellowship in country western music and dance by teaching dance lessons at our country dance nights and workshops.

Today SCC continues its commitment to its community in keeping with our mission.
