The Dinah Shore Weekend, also known as "The Dinah " is a popular and well known annual event that takes place in Palm Springs, California. It has gained a reputation as the most prominent festival focused on lesbian and queer women worldwide. Mariah Hanson founded this event in 1991 under the Club Skirts brand. Initially it started as a golf tournament catering to the lgbtq+Q+ community. Has since grown into an extravagant five day celebration featuring pool parties live music performances, comedy shows, appearances by celebrities and a variety of recreational activities.
Traditionally The Dinah occurs in March or early April to coincide with the ANA Inspiration (formerly known as the Kraft Nabisco Championship) which is a significant womens golf tournament held in Rancho Mirage, California. The festival deliberately aligns with this tournament to cater to the number of lesbian golf enthusiasts who visit the area to watch these matches.
One of The Dinahs aspects is its commitment to promoting womens empowerment, inclusivity and acceptance within the lgbtq+Q+ community. Throughout the years this festival has provided a platform, for emerging lgbtq+Q+ artists and performers while also showcasing established acts.
The event has featured a lineup of celebrity guests, such as Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Tegan and Sara and Salt N Pepa among others.
The Dinah is often described as an energetic gathering thats sometimes referred to as the "lesbian spring break." People from around the world come together at this event to celebrate community, freedom and joy. The Dinah is seen by many as a safe haven where they can express themselves openly without any fear of judgment.
Although the main focus is on queer women the Dinah welcomes everyone who supports the lgbtq+Q+ community. Throughout the years it has become an emblem of pride, unity and resilience, within the lgbtq+Q+ world.
