Here’s Your Gay Desert Guide for the Weekend: Jan. 28–30, 2022🌴

January 28–30, 2022 

There are some big plans for the new Acrisure Arena which will play host to hockey, and so much more. Owners have already recognized the importance of the LGBTQIA+ community in the valley and created a rainbow logo for the new Coachella Valley Firebirds. (Read more on on blog.)

You can see the progress on the arena driving along I-10 near Cook Street. It is set to open by this time next year! Lots of chatter about it (and the obscure company who got the naming rights!)

Everyone is hoping the Omicron is indeed starting to wane as many events on our calendar are still on a precarious perch of cancel/don’t cancel. White Party is now on sale, and Red Dress/Dress Red has been given the green light to proceed. IBC is full steam ahead, while the Dinah confirmed Fall dates at Margaritaville.

For the latest, follow our socials @GayDesertGuide and @KGAY1065 and listen to KGAY Palm Springs wherever you may be!
