Let's Talk about "Gay Palm Springs" Tuesday night at Camelot Theatres, April 17.
The history of gay life in Palm Springs - how it became a resort town for gay men and a mecca for gay culture. Robert Stone will talk about the history of gay life in Palm Springs dating back to 1913. Remembering the years when gays remained closeted and denied the right to live openly, followed by the promise of the 1920's and how social attitudes evolved. Take a look at the set backs along the way, what role pioneering woman and Hollywood would play, and the influence of the gay community today in Palm Springs.
