I am originally from Washington DC and moved to northern California in 1975 after joining Hewlett-Packard's commercial computer group. Four years prior to my retirement from HP, I and 11 other gay and lesbian employees performed a "Readers Theater" before the president and his executive committee, relating personal experiences of being gay in Hewlett-Packard. At the time, I was a General Manager and the highest openly gay manager in the company. This resulted in Hewlett-Packard's being the first fortune 500 company to extend domestic partner benefits to its employees 3 months later. I took an early retirement from Hewlett-Packard in 2000 and moved to Palm Springs. I am now a licensed Real Estate agent and live with my partner, Denny, of 26 years, enjoying friends and family in our desert paradise. We were married on June 21,2008 by the Mayor of Palm Springs during a marriage celebration sponsored by the city. It was a great event, with over 25 couples being married individually, by members of the city council and mayor. Our closest friends and my brother and sister-in-law attended.

Palm Springs has been referred to by many as a new Gay Mecca. The city boasts a very large and diverse Gay resident population and has become a prime travel destination from the West coast (Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle), Midwest, Northeast, Southwest, as well as internationally. More and more "Family" visitors from the Pacific Rim, Europe and South America are discovering Palm Springs’ Gay-friendly spirit.
Why is Palm Springs so appealing to the Gay traveler? It’s a huge outdoor playground with consistently brilliant sunshine, great for sunning and all types of outdoor activities with the sweet, clean air of the famed Coachella Valley. The jagged, boulder-covered San Jacinto Mountains are set against a brilliant blue sky which reflects hot, dry heat onto the palm-studded valley desert paradise.
There is something truly special about Palm Springs beyond its beautiful oasis setting in the arid Southern California desert. The Greater Palm Springs area has more Gay-Friendly restaurants, nightclubs, hotels, retailers and other businesses than any other one gay destination. Here in Palm Springs, more than anywhere else, homosexual men and women of all ages and from all backgrounds and places visit and are welcomed by the community.
In fact, Palm Springs during the last five (5) years has experienced an explosion of new Gay residents and businesses. Current estimates are that we are now 40 percent of the population. We are welcomed in Palm Springs.
Palm Springs has an ongoing flow of exciting Gay-oriented calendar of events, including the International Film Festival, the Nabisco Classic (formally the Dinah Shore Classic) and of course the infamous White Party on Easter Weekend. The city’s Pride Festival is a sanctioned Palm Springs event with a fabulous parade followed by an all-afternoon and evening festival with live entertainment, food, dancing, concessions and fun games. The Arenas Street Party is another Gay festival, not unlike Pride, which occurs on Arenas Road, Palm Springs’ Castro Street, which now lasts two (2) days. At Halloween, Arenas Street is converted into another Gay festival block party with costume parties at the many bars and a street costume show and formal judging contest.
Every Thursday night Palm Springs’ main street, Palm Canyon Drive, is closed to traffic and opened to an extensive festival including food vendors, arts and crafts exhibits and loads of free entertainment by numerous artists. Strolling, munching, looking and sipping the length of Palm Canyon Drive from one end to the other in the heart of Palm Springs is a great way to ‘people and puppy watch’ for an hour or an entire evening.
Every first Friday evening of each month North Palm Canyon Drive, the Antiques District of the city, has an open house called the First Friday. This is primarily an Antiques Shop Open House.
This is the life in sunny Palm Springs California. The climate is the envy of the world with more than 330 days of sunshine each year. The town’s atmosphere is laid back and like a small village full of small shops and specialty stores. And most everyone is gay friendly. Come and enjoy our desert paradise.
