Here’s Your Gay Desert Guide for Mother’s Day Weekend: May 7–9, 2021

First, the Forever Marilyn misstep and now no 4th of July fireworks.  I’m starting to wonder about the wisdom of our Palm Springs City Council… 

However, there are a few good signs on the horizon as it appears VillageFest will return on July 1st and that turning Oscar’s “Tea Dance” floor and bar into a hotel pool has been turned down.
We’re excited to have the GayDesertGuide Fun & Games
Gay Desert Guide Brad Fuhr
Dept. hosting “An Evening on the Lanai: Remembering the Golden Girls” on Thursday, May 27th.  Stan Zimmerman, who wrote season one, will be joined by Alexander Rodriguez from “On the Rocks Radio”  at Oscar’s and tickets are selling fast!
Cathedral City’s Gay Business Association is planning a Pride month celebration and we’ll have all the details here.  Palm Springs Pride is inching forward with plans for November.  Can we pack any more into those two weeks spanning the end of October and the beginning of November??? Desert AIDS Walk has now moved its event to October 30th, the same weekend as Leather Pride and White Party.  Jeff Hocker tells me that “Halloween on Arenas” is being planned as well.
Please check out the full weekend lineup below, listen to our #ILoveGayPalmSprings podcast, and subscribe to our newsletter so you’re up to date each week!
