BY KEVIN PERRY

By day, you’re a mild-mannered go-getter multi-hyphenate clad in sensible tweed and distinguished restraint…

But that’s SO not you (we’ve met).

Drop the blahs and get some ahs, because the moon is comin’ out and so are you! Palm Springs boasts a bevy of drag supremacy every night of the week, so we’ve compiled an itinerary of eye candy (an eye-tinerary, if you will… and we know you will).

Brunch, Bingo & Brassy Broads

Hangovers can be brutal, so stomp them out with a stylish stiletto and keep the party going! Weekends in Palm Springs heat up fast, and the drag scene is awake at the cleavage of dawn to entertain you. Nurse your morning-after woes with a mimosa (or ten) and wake up juuuust enough to follow the breakneck action of one of our town’s raucous bingo affairs.

For many in the LGBTQ’mmunity, our heritage begins the day we come out of the closet. Most of us are raised by straight families, so we must seek out gay culture in order to fully embrace its history, herstory, and humanity. But Tommi Rose is the Rosetta Stone of Palm Springs. In addition to slaying and sashaying for 43 years, her encyclopedic knowledge of drag entertainment has tendrils that stretch back to the roots of a grand (dame) tradition.

All Together Now

Our LGBTQ story often goes unwritten. Though we have contributed some of the world’s greatest art, philosophy, and humanity, many gay pioneers are systematically relegated to the shadows of history…

But when nobody hears you, just raise your voice.

“I love to sing.” This is the simple yet pitch-perfect declaration of Palm Springs Gay Men’s Chorus President David Sanchez. “Everybody in the chorus is there for that same reason. They have the passion for singing.”
