Palm Springs, The Official Host City Of Club Skirts Dinah Shore Weekend, Launches New Destination Wedding Website

For the past 23 years, Club Skirts Dinah Shore Weekend has been offering gay women from all over the world the opportunity to escape for five days from the rest of their 360-day life of make believe, in the closet, and provides them the freedom to be who they are.

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.

As one of the #1 LGBT travel destinations, the city, dubbed "the new Gay Mecca" boasts more gay and gay-friendly restaurants, nightclubs, hotels, retailers and other businesses than any other one gay destination in the world.  Nowhere else do lesbians get such a strong sense of community, solidarity and acceptance, feeling as much as home within the walls of the event as anywhere else on Palm Springs' playground.

Now, more than a tradition The Dinah Shore Weekend has intrinsically been linked to the Sunny Oasis becoming a Palm Springs institution.

Celebrating this past April twenty-three years of blissful marriage, the City of Palm Springs and The Dinah officially renewed their wedding vows. The victorious pair  symbolically solidified the lifelong relationship and commitment that run deep between both brides via an exclusive VIP Rewards Program - reaffirming the sacred union as two of the most popular gay Meccas in the country. 

As one of California's top LGBT destinations, today Palm Springs is one step closer for same-sex couples looking to tie the knot.

And indeed, it's a perfect match: Palm Springs and same-sex marriage!
