For the past 23 years, Club Skirts Dinah Shore Weekend has been offering lesbians from all over the world the opportunity to escape for five days from the rest of our 360-day life still spent for some of us in the closet, and provide us all the freedom to be who we truly are - no matter what the size of our body, the color of our skin, how old or young we are, or the tax bracket we belong to.

We come together to share a common bond: we like girls and it’s ok! :)
Yet none of this universal unity, love and solidarity would have been possible if it wasn't as well for the host city of The Dinah Shore Weekend, namely the City of Palm Springs

Whether it's your first time coming to The Dinah or not, discover America’s Great Gay Oasis in the heart of Southern California!   

With more than 26 LGBT Resorts, multiple Gay Bars, Gay RestaurantsGay Shopping and over 330 days of sunshine, it’s no wonder Palm Springs is a perennial favorite for gay and lesbian travelers!

In the 1930’s, Hollywood stars, movie moguls, and world leaders discovered sunny Palm Springs and made it their secret hideaway.  And with them came the Gay boys and girls of the day to enjoy the pools, the weather, the cocktails, and the freedom to enjoy it all without the scrutiny of Hollywood’s cameras and gossip columnists.  

In the 1950’s, yet another wave of Hollywood greats discovered Palm Springs. Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, the Rat Pack, and even Lucy & Desi moved to Palm Springs. And again, their friends, the Gay boys and girls, joined them to sip martinis by the pools of their fabulous Mid-Century homes.  

In the 1980’s, Gay Palm Springs exploded with the opening of dozens of LGBT exclusive resorts and clubs.  And today the tradition continues with of course Club Skirts Dinah Shore Weekend, Gay Pride in November, and other LGBT related events all year long. 

Palm Springs ranks with Sitges, Mykonos, Ibiza, Key West, and Provincetown as one of the world’s most famous Gay destinations!  

The Hilton Hotel located in the heart of Downtown Palm Springs, and host hotel of the Dinah 2013 

The Zoso Hotel, The Dinah's second host hotel, also conveniently located downtown Palm Springs

Palm Springs offers a wealth of activities and events throughout the year. 
Soar to the top of Mount San Jacinto on the world famous Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, shop ‘til you drop along Palm Canyon Drive, or hike the ancient palm groves of the Indian Canyons. 

Downtown Palm Springs, CA

Tour celebrity and Mid-Century homes, attend fabulous theatre performances, wind down with a poolside massage, or just spend the day in the sun at your LGBT resort. 

In the evening, dine in one of the dozens of award winning restaurants downtown, then drop into the gay bars for drinks and dancing.  Finalize your day with a midnight swim under the stars. 

Palm Springs has the largest concentration of LGBT resorts in the Western United States, and most are clothing optional. Palm Springs is a short drive from most major Southern California cities and an easy 
air flight from the rest of the world.
