Don’t Miss Palm Springs Women’s Week!

Palm Springs Women’s Week is intended to bring women from around the country to the Coachella Valley to participate in a week of events designed to celebrate Lesbian culture and elevate the status of women. It will cast a bright light on talented local women and explore the issues and attitudes that define women’s experiences everywhere. This event is produced by the Palm Springs Women’s Jazz Festival and Lucy & Gail.

Personal message from Lucy & Gail: “We hope Palm Springs Women’s Week will become a model for lesbians everywhere to celebrate the accomplishments and contributions of their communities. The lesbian community of the Coachella Valley, which includes Palm Springs, has come together to fund and produce a week of activities that shine a spotlight on the creativity and intellectual wisdom we contribute to society and for which we wish to be recognized and respected.  It’s a party with power!”
