The Dinah is on the hunt for a few (thousand) good women

For nearly a quarter of a century, the city of Palm Springs, Cal. has been home to the biggest all-girl event in the world: The Dinah Shore Weekend, popularly known as The Dinah.

Coinciding with the Ladies Professional Gold Association’s Kraft Nabisco Championship Golf Tournament (formerly the Dinah Shore Golf Championship), The Dinah has become the world’s largest lesbian event.

This year’s event, April 3 to 7, will once again be filled with pool parties and dances. Scheduled entertainers include comedian Suzanne Westenhoefer; singers K. Rose, Anjulie, Havana Brown, Kat Graham and Karmin;  and actress Kiyomi McCloskey, Jill Bennett and Jessica Clark.
