Brad Fuhr, Your Gay Desert GuideWelcome to the women and many others who are in town to attend the 30th anniversary of Club Skirts Dinah Shore Weekend. A shoutout to Mariah Hansen for her vision and for bringing women together!

The big news is Palm Springs Pride’s lineup. You heard it first Friday morning with Ron DeHarte, CEO, with the announcement on KGAY 106.5 Palm Springs.

We’re excited to be partnering with Pride, Alaska Airlines, and Vacaya LGBTQ+ Vacations as we conduct the 2nd annual “Light Up the Night”. You could win airfare and go sailing 7 nights on the beautiful and fully-revolutionized Celebrity Millennium, we’re taking you deeeeeeep into the Southern Caribbean to explore two of the most idyllic islands in the world – Aruba, and Curaçao! Details shortly.
