Dinah is a cultural rite of passage, attendance is practically required.

"

At a time when queer spaces around the world are disappearing and our rights are under attack, it's more important than ever to support our spaces, events, and entrepreneurs. While Dinah can be akin to lesbo spring break - it's also a place where we as a community can let loose and enjoy in some debauchery. 

The last few months have been rough for our community. Dinah is the perfect opportunity to shake off the heaviness and let loose in a space created for and by our people. Use this weekend to basic in self-care, make new friends, and let loose in the desert heat.

Dinah is a great time whether you're single and on the prowl or happily in a relationship. Dinah is a great place to meet new people, make new friends, and build relationships outside of your home city. Who knows maybe you'll find your new bff or Ms. Right?

Dinah is one part pool party, one part nightlife, and two parts concert. Dinah hasn't released their official performance list yet but count on seeing many famous faces in the crowd in years past they've hosted Iggy Azalea, Katy Perry, Meghan Trainer, Lady Gaga, UhhuhHer, DJ Whitney Day and numerous other talented performers. 

Fly into Los Angeles 
 
On the first day we will be arriving in Los Angeles by 2PM where we will meet up with our group and grab lunch before hitting the road in our babe filled bus - okay okay - it's actually a passenger van- but for this dream sequence it's a bus filled with badass queer women headed to Palm Springs. Once we arrive we'll have an hour to chill before dinner and it's off to the first party the Opening Night at Zelda's. 
Joshua Tree 
 
We'll wake up late and have breakfast as a group - then it's off to Joshua Tree National Park to see the desert landscapes and East Jesus Art installation to learn a bit about the area outside of Dinah. We'll head back to Palm Springs for dinner and to get ready for the Dinah's famous White Party. 
Wet and Wild Pool Party 
 
On day three the full Dinah Crowd will finally be in town. We'll kick things off with a group breakfast and then head down to the pool party. After the pool, we'll have dinner as a group and head out to the Hollywood Party with musical performances at 10pm. 
Sunday Funday 
 
We'll kick Sunday Funday off with an epic poolside DJ battle, a meet and greet with some of your favorite YouTubers, oh yea and live performances by some of your favorite Celesbians. All that before dinner. After we eat as a group we'll head over to the closing party for one last night on the town. 
Saying Goodbye 
 
On our last day in Palm Springs we'll grab breakfast and check out of our rooms before heading back to LAX for flights home. 
Your Itinerary
 
The best part about this trip is once you step off the airplane everything is planned for you. We'll pick you up, match you with an awesome LezBiQueer roommate, hangout with you at all the parties and events - shit we're even feeding you two meals a day. You have to do the spoon to mouth thing yourself - we're not your momma. Well - unless you're into that - cough - anyway Dinah - pool party - queer folks. Here's what we'll be doing on our trip.
