The 2023 Golden Dildeaux Awards ceremony filled the crowd with laughs at the banter between the MC’s, Dolan Wolf and Dixie De La Tour. Entertainment was provided by Sadyst Payne. Nominees and their friends and supporters filled the SF Eagle’s patio to see the awards presented, and snap pictures of the winners holding their “Woody” statuettes on the red carpet.
The races this year were hot and heavy and many categories were won by just a handful of votes. We saw many top spots flip back and forth several times a day in the last week. The LEATHER District would like to thank everyone who voted! Results at the bottom of this post.
The April 22nd crowd at the SF Eagle brimmed with excitement and anticipation as 26 Woody statuettes were presented to those who got the most votes, including one for the highest fundraiser in a single category.
It was a record year, and a ceremonial check for $18,000 was presented to the PRC Emergency Financial Assistance fund, though a last minute update brought the total to $18,341.33.
Special awards were given to Jack Folchi and Lou Grosso, who were the tireless webmasters since 2007 and were extremely helpful in the transition to the LEATHER & LGBTQ Cultural District’s acquisition of this beloved tradition. We can’t thank them enough for their years of work and all their support this year!
Special recognition was offered to the Golden Gate Guards, who were the proud stewards of the awards from 1994 through 2022 and facilitated the transition of the awards to the District.
A shout out goes to Cody Elkins and Star D. Love: thank you for your years of service MC’ing the Awards through 2022.
