Here’s Your Gay Desert Guide for the Weekend, July 8–10, 2022🌴


When the owners of Kat & Cody/Frank’s Clothiers/Cold Nose, Warm Heart came to us with a summer “clearance” sale idea, we jumped at the opportunity to help organize it.  So the Sizzling’ Summer Sale is happening Saturday & Sunday at the Hilton Hotel. We’re hoping to repeat this again later in the year (when it’s not sizzlin’ out) but do encourage you to stop by.

The Dinah announced their lineup this week and we’ve got all the details.  You can tell we’re gearing up for “season” already as CV Rep and Dezart Performs, two of our beloved theatre companies, also put their seasons on sale.

Remember to download our calendar of events from the homepage of GayDesertGuide.LGBT.  I keep a copy on my fridge for reference.

Enjoy this great weekend in #GreaterPalmSprings
