Palm Springs is a place like no other when it comes to Drag. Between our numerous gay bars, LGBTQ+-owned restaurants, and fabulous other venues, it is a rare moment when you can’t see hair heels and attitude in our desert oasis.
Luckily Palm Springs is host to a growing number of drag shows, and people are packing them because what could signal normal better than a bunch of clowns in dresses. These shows are open and inviting to everyone, although the clientele does tend to slant gay (you are still in Palm Springs, after all). Drag shows can be enjoyed by anyone looking to have a great time, grandparents, bachelorettes, straight boys, or lesbians. Make sure you tip the performers (Drag isn’t cheap) and be respectful; these are queer spaces where our community can come together. Happily, most drag queens now accept Venmo, so not having any dollar bills on you is no excuse.
