Here’s Your Gay Desert Guide for the Weekend: Sept 24–26, 2021

Sept. 24–26, 2021

We start the weekend off with a chance for rain and thunder this afternoon.  Hopefully it will be dry for Happy Hours across the valley as the temps are cooling a bit and we can truly enjoy the patios – sans misters.

I love the new touches that Palm Canyon Theatre is putting on an old chestnut – “Sordid Lives” starts tonight with new audience participation elements.  Read about it below. 

On the big screen, it’s the last weekend of Cinema Diverse.  I am giving a shoutout to Andrea Myerson, whose film, “This Is Jessica” screens Saturday night.  I’ve known Andrea from the LA days and her stellar work where she has been featured at Outfest.  This film about a Mormon boy who knew she was a girl. As described, “This is the story of a woman faced with an impossible choice between the life into which she was born, and the one she was born to live.”

Listen Monday to me and John Taylor on the morning show when I’ll have a little dirt on Tammy Fae Baker’s life in the desert.  And be sure to check out KGAY’s Facebook page for your chance to win Gladys Knight tickets.

We have launched new Guides in Instagram that will help you find your way to the top spots for dining, nightlife, events and shopping. Follow us @GayDesertGuide today!

Listen to my weekly updates on Monday and Fridays on KGAY 106.5 Palm Springs and the John Taylor morning show.

Palm Canyon Theatre presents Palm Springs favorite Sordid Lives, from Friday, September 24 through Sunday, October 3. Since PCT is now doing Sordid Lives for the 8th time, they are shaking things up by making it audience participation. The audience will be encouraged to wear a wig cap, when Brother Boy does, and pop “pills” when Dr. Eve does. This play is already a blast…and now this will really make it fun and a different experience—even for those who have seen it 8+ times! Get tickets
