Palm Springs is considered one of the most gay friendly spots in the country.

The LGBT Community Center of the Desert provides a bridge to bring LGBT people together through a variety of health and wellness offerings.
“I tell people all the time that I believe our competition is isolation,” says Mike Thompson, executive director of The LGBT Community Center of the Desert. “A community center’s job is to bring people together and create opportunities for connection. Our work is about creating a vibrant community. We all live in this great place together — how can we do life together?”
