From the comments on the Edinburgh youtube video: This dance was devised by Tim Bolton-Maggs, RSCDS Edinburgh, for Sid Taylor who was intrigued to hear about the Edinburgh Gay Gordons so commissioned one of her folk music friends to write 'The Pink Triangle'. Sadly, Sid died of cancer before the dance was premièred at the Gay Gordons' ceilidh in December 2012. The original tune, “The Pink Triangle” was written by Jon Bews.
