Desert Outlook

A sophisticated and provocative magazine exploring Coachella Valley news and culture for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender residents and tourists.

The LGBT community is a significant and growing part of the Coachella Valley and consists of residents and visitors who are well educated, community-involved, well-travelled, creative and social.  In Palm Springs alone, they are 40 to 60 percent of the population.  Desert Outlook is their community connection through print, digital media products, and events.  And it can be the successful link to business who want to engage the LGBT community in a meaningful way.
