Here’s Your Gay Desert Guide for the Weekend: Sept 23–25, 2022🌴

September 23–25, 2022 

The lineup for #PalmSpringsPride was announced this week and Todrick Hall is front and center this year. That in addition to Pussy Riot and a cadre of other LGBGQ+ talent will entertain young and old this year.

We’re proud to takeover the Arenas District Dance Stage with KGAY 106.5. It will feature LA’s Ray Rhodes (founder of Tiger Heat), DJ Modgirl and will end the weekend with a live broadcast of the Sunday Retro Brunch with DJ Galaxy and DJ Eric Ornelas.

Don’t forget to cast your “early” vote this year – not for any governmental positions, but for KGAY & John Taylor! While John could likely never run for public office, he was runner-up last year in top radio personality in the Desert Sun’s Best of Desert 2022. And this is a competition he should win! The link is below.

And this weekend is The Dinah, where we will be “reporting” via the socials all weekend. Mariah Hanson has put together a stellar entertainment lineup and builds community among our lesbian and non-binary women. We’re proud to be a media sponsor again this year!

Enjoy this great weekend in #GreaterPalmSprings
