Here’s Your Gay Desert Guide for the Weekend: Oct 22-24, 2021

Brad Fuhr, Your Gay Desert GuideOur new Downtown Palm Springs park is beautiful! And if you didn’t get down to the grand opening on Thursday, you’ll have an opportunity to stroll through during Pride. Our booth with VACAYA LGBT+ Vacations will be right under Marilyn’s dress on Museum Way. Back to the park: There’s a beautiful water feature, new public restrooms and the feel of being in Indian Canyons.

The LGBTQ Center is “CenterStage” this weekend with its annual fundraiser and grand reopening of their building on North Palm Canyon.

Don’t forget to vote in the Coachella Valley Independent Best of Coachella Valley by Monday, October 25. KGAY and our peeps are nominated four times! We especially are proud of DJ Eric Ornelas and DJ Galaxy who spin the Retro Lunch and Retro Sunday Brunch!
