The Power of the Story

Event Details

The LGBTQ+ History and Archives of the Desert celebrates National Pride Month with a FREE community lecture. Reservations required.

Thursday, JUNE 30 The LGBTQ+ History & Archives of the Desert celebrates National Pride Month by presenting The Power of Story: How Local Media Put Gay Palm Springs on the Map.

For a smaller community, Palm Springs has had significant, consistent LGBTQ media outlets over the decades. Did these outlets raise the community's profile as an LGBTQ destination? Many would argue they did! Hear from local journalists and learn more about their important contributions to our community.

The event will be from at 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. at the Palm Springs Cultural Center/Camelot Theatres and will feature Bruce Fessier, the retired entertainment reporter for The Desert Sun, Nino Eilets, former business manager of The Bottom Line and editor of The Standard Magazine, and Denise Goolsby, former journalist for The Desert Sun and currently Manager for the Office of Neighborhoods for the City of Palm Springs. The discussion will be moderated by Brad Fuhr, KGAY Palm Springs and The Gay Desert Guide.

A new exhibit of News Stories from various local publications about LGBTQ events that took place in the Greater Palm Springs area is being shown during the month of June in the lobby of the Palm Springs Cultural Center, 2300 East Baristo Road.
