The gay community in Palm Springs has a long history that started during the Golden Years of Hollywood. Eventually, the community thrived, and Palm Springs became one of the ‘gayest’ cities in the country. At just slightly over a 2-hour drive from Hollywood, entertainers and stars retreat to relax and get away from the public eye. In this post, I’ll cover some of the top-rated Palm Springs gay bars.
