LGBT

Greater Palm Springs has a long history as a favored destination for gay, lesbian, bi-sexual and transgender visitors, and the Oasis offers a distinctive variety of gay-owned B&B inns, restaurants, bars, retailers and other specialty businesses. These properties cater specifically to the LGBT community, so it’s no wonder Greater Palm Springs is a magnet for same sex visitors from around the globe.

Men can bare it all at The Escape Resort, one of the longest-running, clothing-optional, gay-friendly resorts serving Greater Palm Springs, or they can enjoy a more modest getaway at the clothing-required East Canyon Hotel & Spa. Lesbians can enjoy their own safe haven at such area properties as Casitas Laquita.
