For many, The Dinah is an annual tradition between friends; for others it is a bucket-list goal, a pilgrimage to our very own Mecca that every queer woman should make at least once in her life. No matter what the impetus for attending is, The Dinah is for all a unique opportunity to experience one of the most bonding, liberating and transforming festival ever in the spirit of sisterhood and community.
No other event in the world embodies the essence of woman empowerment like The Dinah does. Entering its 29th year & standing strong and proud as one of the largest and longest running party & music festival for queer women in the world
The Dinah is back with the five-day event taking place in Palm Springs, California on April 3-7. The event will include massive pool parties with world famous DJs and go-go dancers, red carpet events with nationally renowned musical performances, meet and greets with your favorite “Ce-lesbians”, and so much more.
Mariah Hanson founded world famous Club Skirts Dinah Shore Weekend in 1991 with the intention of creating a safe space for women and women-identified individuals to celebrate, unite, and empower each other. Since then, the event has grown to be considered the largest lesbian event in the world.
Hanson has not only carried on her mission with an event once a year, but has used the Dinah to spread this message all year long through her important work with organizations such as The HRC, National Center for Lesbian Rights, and GLAAD. Giving back to the community is at the core of The Dinah.
Hanson also has a keen ear for the best musical acts that appeal to the female listener. From 2018 headliner Jessie Reyez, whose short film The Gatekeeper, and song of the same title are considered precursors to the #metoo movement and Madame Gandhi’s “Future is Female” to past acts such as Lady Gaga, Kesha, and Katy Perry, festival-goers know they’re always in for a great show!
There’s a great lineup in store for 2019. Find out more by visiting thedinah.com
