2018 Festival

DiversityDHS one again continues our tradition of offering a wonderful offering of entertainment and arts at our annual pride festivals. We create a space for established and emerging talent to showcase their creativity and diverse natures.

Our festival is a rare standout among non-urban events where we focus on creating a comprehensive arts and entertainment offering to captivate a wide range of tastes among our guests in an intimate and enjoyable setting.

A popular favorite in the clean rap genre, Jinza has a fast expanding following and has venue dates ongoing locally as well as in popular Arts District Los Angeles performance spaces.

Palm Springs Gay Men’s Chorus

The Palms Springs Gay Men’s Chorus was originally organized in 1999 as the Caballeros, a community chorus of twenty-four men. The group debuted as a guest ensemble for the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles.

They now make Palm Springs their home and delight the entire community with their spirited and joyful style of communicating through music and song.


The legend continues as KeishaD returns for her second year singing with such smooth style and a unique inspiring grace. She is always there when the community calls, all in selfless manner and generosity.
