Golden Gate Guards Hosts 44th Annual Golden Dildeaux Awards

By February 18, 2016



By Pony

The Golden Gate Guards will host the 44th Golden Dildeaux Awards (GDA) Ceremony on Saturday, April, 16 at the SF Eagle. This event is an annual club fundraiser with net proceeds donated to the AIDS Emergency Fund (AEF).

The GDAs were established by the late Mr. Marcus in 1972, 44 years ago. In 1994, Mr. Marcus asked Andy Rose of the Golden Gate Guards to take it over, provided AEF was always the beneficiary. These humorous awards are intended to poke fun at various sexual activities while at the same time provide a unique charity fund raising opportunity.

The GDAs are held in three phases: Nomination, Voting and Awards Ceremony.

Community nominations and voting are held on the Guards web site http://www.ggguards.org

Anyone can submit the names of their friends and/or enemies as nomination phase starts February, 20 and closes March, 17. Funds are raised by voting for the most popular nominees, with each vote raising $1 for the AIDS Emergency Fund. Voting will commence March 19 through April, 15. Box stuffing by casting multiple votes is highly encouraged.

Awards will be presented to those winning the most votes in a fun and casual ceremony at the SF Eagle 398 12th Street, San Francisco, CA 94103 from 6-9 PM. Entertainment will be provided by Raquela and members of the Golden Gate Guards.


About the Golden Gate Guards

Originally founded in 1976 as the Imperial Guards of San Francisco, the club served as an unofficial liaison between the Imperial Courts and the Leather-Levi's community. In late 1986, with the courts' blessing, we became an independent organization known as the Golden Gate Guards.

Our overlay pays tribute to our beginnings with both the year (1976) and the Imperial Crown. The year 1987 and the phoenix represent the beginning of the GGG.
