Another sickening soirée is knocking: it’s Palm Springs Pride. The talent will be heavy and the mood will be gay with Blush! LA on deck in the desert, bringing music, performance and radical joy. Led by DJ and producer Shane Thomas, we’re thrilled they’re leading this year’s Pride spectacular. London/LA legend ThoughtKnot kick starts the festivities alongside R&She; our friend Saturn Risin9 returns to educate and entertain, hosting parties and a panel on queer creativity; the inimitable Violet Chachki graces our grounds for the first time, as do Bronze Avery, Mia Carucci and Emeryld. Get your beauty sleep now — we’re going all night.

About Blush!

Founded in 2021, Blush! was rooted in a desire to create a safe space for the queer and trans community. The party finally found its home at Ace DTLA, where Shane and his queer cohorts share visual art and sounds laced with high-energy club edits, hip-hop, reggaeton and live performances.
