Here’s Your Gay Desert Guide for the Weekend: Nov. 12-14, 2021

November 12–14, 2021 

Happy “Happy Hour Day”.  Black Friday is just two weeks away and the holidays are basically upon us!

We are still basking in the warmth of Palm Springs Pride 2021 – one for the record books for sure.  Congrats to our “Light Up the Night” winners: DestinationPSP for best business display and Shann Carr for Best Home Display.  Each wins air travel on Alaska Airlines and Shann gets to finally enjoy a VACAYA LGBT+ Vacation without having to do stand up!

And don’t forget to tune in Saturdays 10-12 noon PT to hear Ross Mathews on KGAY 106.5 Palm Springs this month.
