Why won't DS go to other people's houses?

My DS is 13 and has ADHD. His father my ex is socially very awkward. I'm very sociable and so is SO. We are off to a works family bbq today and DS is flatly refusing to go. He always does this and it makes me sad and mad at the same time. I have tried telling him well in advance and keeping it til the last minute. I end up making bloody deals with him or shouting and getting upset. I'm not happy to leave him at home on his own, I know the law is grey about this. All he wants to do is lie in his bed watching bloody YouTube. Help!
