Here’s Your Gay Desert Guide for the Weekend, July 15–17, 2022🌴

July 15–17, 2022 

We’ve been wondering aloud what the Palm Springs Pride theme will be this year. “Rainbow Bridge Over Troubled Waters” with Randy Rainbow as the Grand Marshall? I’m sure we’ll know soon enough. I bring it up as San Diego celebrates Pride this weekend with a theme of “Justice With Joy.” It’s not a particularly joyful year by any means, but the theme does have a nice ring to it.

If you’re attending San Diego Pride, please #ILoveGayPride in your posts and tag @gaydesertguide with some of your selfies! Me? I’m at Gay Wine in Sonoma escaping the heat for a few days.

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
