I'm very happy to report that I am home, healthy, and still basking in the glow of another EPIC Palm Springs Pride. You know, it's funny, but I lived in the Desert for a couple of years right after high school and i never really considered Palm Spring's Pride festivities to be anything more than an excuse for the locals to display some rainbow hued arts and crafts (my mom of course, LOVED it.). But it seems in the last few years to have evolved far beyond that.
Owed in no small part to the tireless efforts of Victor Rodriguez, who has busted his ass to bring in some of the most talented DJ's and performers the West Coast has to offer. The centerpiece of this 'new' Palm Springs Pride is the weekend long pool party at the Ace Hotel. It's a perfect blend of debauchery and old school Palm Springs Glamor. The drinks are strong, the music is flawless, and the gentlemen are both handsome and charming. I finally understand why Palm Springs was the destination for the luminaries of Old Hollywood. When you do it right, Palm Springs is a party that just doesn't stop.

I already can't wait for next year.
