Damn the luck! The testing requirement for air travel expires just hours after I will return from my early summer vacation.

I’m going to miss weekend one of Splash House with KGAY artist Diplo headlining one of the many pool parties this weekend in #IlLoveGayPalmSprings. There are two more on the summer calendar in August and KGAY and Gay Desert Guide will be giving away passes.

And now on a more serious note: Like the Watergate hearings of my generation, the January 6th hearings will certainly go down in history. Thursday night’s opening salvo painted a bleak picture of how close we came to a number of disastrous consequences of that administration’s thirst for power.

I bring it up, dear reader, to shine a spotlight on the primary election this week. We advanced two local LGBTQ+ candidates – Will Rollins and Christy Holstege. The freedoms we have gained and enjoy today are in danger of eroding without an engaged electorate – you! Please support and vote for the candidates who help keep us safe and free.

Be sure to listen to KGAY 106.5 Palm Springs no matter whether you’re near or far from the Coachella Valley. Enjoy this great weekend in #GreaterPalmSprings

Oscar’s Sunday T-Dance

Oscar’s Sunday T-Dance is a Palm Springs tradition, taking place in their outdoor courtyard every Sunday from 5–8 pm during the summer. If you’ve spent the day by the pool listening to the Retro Sunday Brunch on KGAY 106.5 (Sundays from 11 am– 4 pm), keep the party going afterward at Oscar’s! Concerned about the sizzling summer temperatures? They have outdoor cool air blasters for the extreme hot days. Dance the evening away, the first hour is free and $10 cover charge thereafter.
