No on-site Ticket Sales or Registration

December 7th, 2021

Please be aware that there are currently no on-site ticket sales at the door, and no on-site registration.

Previously, people could pay admission at the door. We have moved to Advance Tickets Required, because we need more information (like COVID Vaccination status), and to allow us to make sure we stay within the city's Capacity Limits for the space. We literally do not keep a cash box at the Front Desk and are not set up for sales at the door.

We also used to have a laptop that people who were bringing guests who were not in our system could use to enter their vital information, and the Front Desk could then retrieve it and print a Release Form for them to sign. Unfortunately, we've had three laptops stolen within the past year, and are no longer equipped for doing on-site registration.

So, make sure you and your guests buy tickets in advance, and also make sure your guests are registered in our system before coming to an event. Our apologies, but this is non-negotiable.

Message from the Chairman


In less than a month, we will be gathering at Saratoga Springs for Boot Camp after a two year absence. For me, this is our best time to bond, play, and love one another. With an extra day this year, it will be better than ever.

I am pleased to announce that our outdoor dungeon will be returning to Up Your Alley in July. This was one of the very first 15 events I attended years ago and the one that really showed me how special our club of men is. I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible. Of course, we will also have our amazing Saturday evening party that weekend as well.

Looking ahead to November, The 15 Association will be inducted into the Leather Hall of Fame when CLAW returns to Los Angeles over Thanksgiving Weekend. I hope many of you will be able to attend and witness as this honor is bestowed upon us.

In leather,
Christopher Wood
Chairman, The 15 Association

Golden Dildeaux Awards

Originated back in 1974 by Mr. Marcus Hernandez to promote his bar The Cauldron. Later it became a fund raiser for the AIDS Emergency Fund. At Mr Marcus’ request, the Golden Gate Guards continued the tradition of the annual awards as well as fundraising for AEF, which became the Positive Resource Center and now Emergency Financial Assistance. This year, 2022 marks the 50th Anniversary of the GDA’s and raised over $10,000! Thanks to all the nominees and congratulations to the winners.
