Mariah Hanson laughs easily and often.
But even 500 miles away from her family home in Sonoma, you can feel her intensity blaze as she describes her passionate love affair with The Dinah — the largest lesbian party in the world. For 25 years, promoter Hanson has lit up Palm Springs each spring with her distinctive brand of lively women-centric merriment.
“It quickly became a bucket list item for lesbians,” Hanson says. “We really deserve top-notch festivals, and that’s what The Dinah delivers. And we’re proud of it. Our customers deserve it.”
