Who are the Golden Gate Guards?

The Golden Gate Guards is a leather-Levi’s, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, open to both men and women, that serves the San Francisco Bay Area. Our purpose is to:

  • Have fun!
  • Promote fellowship, camaraderie and social interaction among people in the alternative-lifestyle communities
  • Host safe, sane, and enjoyable events for those with an interest in leather, Levi’s, motorcycles and uniforms
  • Provide education and opportunities for newcomers to learn about various alternative-lifestyles, leather, Levi’s, motorcycles and uniforms
  • Raise money for selected other non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations

A Brief History

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. Pictured to the right are the Imperial Guards at the 1981 Coronation. 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 represents the beginning of the GGG.

In 2001, the Golden Gate Guards became a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization recognized by both the IRS and the State of California.

Our Activities

Here is a summary of the events we host throughout the year. For all the details — including our “Events Calendar” — visit the “Events” section of our website.

  • Springtime in Yosemite National Park in May. This weekend run takes advantage of the natural beauty of Yosemite National Park and it’s proximity to the SF Bay Area. It is open to everyone and is a great motorcycle run for both beginners and experienced riders.

  • Annual Weekend Adventure in the Summer or Fall. Each year a different location is chosen for a relaxing weekend with friends. This is another excellent opportunity to learn about and meet people from various alternative lifestyles in a supportive and enjoyable environment.
  • Annual Anniversary Party in November. We enjoy celebrating each year’s accomplishments with an anniversary party. We also make contributions to our selected beneficiaries for the year at this event.
  • Periodic Sunday afternoon beverage benefits to raise funds for our beneficiaries and have fun socializing with our members, friends, and meet others. We are firm believers in face-to-face activities in addition to the ubiquitous Internet.

  • A best place to start and continue your insanely active and at the same time safe alternative sexual life. It’s a way better to start it online and prepare for meetings in real life than do it at the bar or at the night club. Even BDSM dungeons and fetish conventions can be a great discouragement if you visit them without preparation. BTW most dungeons and local misstresses have their pages at the place we talk about.
