Here’s Your Gay Desert Guide for the Weekend: Feb. 25–27, 2022🌴

February 25–27, 2022 

We end February with one of the coldest few days on record – snow capping our mountains and burying the top of the tramway, frosting the lawns and consuming lots of BTU’s by our pools and spas.

It will be a distant memory next week as we welcome in March (in like a lion?) with temps topping 90. And just in time, too! From arts festivals to the BNP Paribas Open, warmer weather will be welcome. The Red Dress/Dress Red Party is sold out, but KGAY has a pair of tickets that you can win. Listen this weekend for details.

Rely on us for recommended LGBTQ friendly and owned businesses, bar and restaurant finds, drag shows, and much more!

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