HOW IT WORKS

Membership grants members access to a mix of free, paid, and members-only events.  Simple as that. This model gives our members the flexibility to only pay for the events they attend. Also, if you select an annual membership, you will receive a one-year subscription to REVRY. We like to think of this as a win-win scenario for our members. 


Baldwin membership includes

  • Priority access to all Baldwin Intimate Excursions and Monthly Rendezvous 

  • Access to Member-Only Mixers

  • Exclusive discounts, gifts, and offers from Baldwin sponsors and partners

  • Network with some of the most exciting gay men of color in the Baldwin network

Choose the payment option that works best for you:

  • Pay annually: $299 for the year or put another way $25 each month. 
    • Cancel Anytime

  • Pay monthly: $39 each month. 
    • Cancel Anytime

Baldwin :: Your Bold, Brave Friend.jpg

Can I attend events if I’m not a member? 

Absolutely!  The more the merrier!  All are welcome to attend our Monthly Rendezvous and our Intimate Excursions as guests, however, if you’re a member, you get access to our member only events and other extra perks!

Why is The Baldwin Gentlemen only for men of color?

The Baldwin Gentlemen centers the experiences of gay men of color because there are not enough safe spaces- social, professional, or otherwise- that cater to our specific needs being men of color and gay men. Our intersectional identities are unique and merit spaces that actively center our experiences.

Is this a dating group?

You know, this question is asked fairly often. We are not a dating group. We are not a hook-up group or anything of that nature. We are a private members club composed of dynamic gay men of color interested in expanding our networks and engaging in memorable experiences through healthy social relationships.

 

Is Baldwin exclusive?

Baldwin is not exclusive, at all. Although we are a private members club, we are not pretentious, snobbish, elitist, or exclusive. In fact, we are quite the opposite. We are inclusive of the various experiences and identifies of gay men of color.

Is The Baldwin Gentlemen a non-profit organization?

No. We are a progressive social enterprise.  We curate and host unique social events and experiences for gay men of color.

Can I bring my partner to a Baldwin event although he is not a person of color?

Your partner is welcome to attend our Monthly Rendezvous and our Intimate Excursions. However, we proudly center and focus on the experiences of gay men of color.

What about women? Can they become members and/or attend events? Women are welcome to attend our Monthly Rendezvous and our Intimate Excursions.  However, we center and focus on the experiences of gay men of color.  It is of utmost importance to us that our members feel that we are catering to their needs.  So, although we do no prohibit women from applying to membership, our community would not adequately meet their needs.

Am I allowed to date someone in the club?

We’ll put it this way we’re not opposed to it. We foster healthy social friendships amongst gay men of color. If you, by chance, are interested in someone (member or guest) at one of our events, we would appreciate it you are respectful of the space we’ve created. Individuals should not engage in any behavior that could potentially compromise the integrity of our club. 

If you’re not exclusive, then why is The Baldwin Gentlemen a private members club?

We are a private members club that wants to ensure the men we invite into our community share our values.  We pride ourselves on embracing men of color who conduct themselves as leaders, thinkers, and above all else, gentlemen.
