Here’s Your Gay Desert Guide for the Weekend: Mar. 11–13, 2022🌴

March 11–13, 2022 

We’re just a weekend away from the Red Dress/Dress Red Party for the LGBTQ Center. I have most of my outfit together, sans the red bra. That’s coming courtesy of my fashionista neighbor, who’s procuring it from WalMart for me 🙂Do you have your look together?
This is one of the most talked-about events in our community where our community comes together to raise funds to keep the Center’s great work moving forward.

And the other Spring fundraisers like The Chase and Evening Under the Stars are just a weeks away as well. Read below and click through to our full blog for the weekend’s events.


And listen to KGAY 106.5 Palm Springs no matter where near nor far from the Coachella Valley. Enjoy this great weekend in #GreaterPalmSprings
