The Power of Story: How Local Media Put Gay Palm Springs on the Map

June 30, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

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? Hear from local journalists Bruce Fessier, 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, a former reporter for The Desert Sun and current Palm Springs Office of Neighborhoods Manager, about their and other contributions to our community. The panel will be moderated by Brad Fuhr, the owner and publisher of The Gay Desert Guide, KGAY Palm Springs, and the Oasis Marketing Group.
