In the 1930s, Hollywood stars flocked to Palm Springs to escape the prying eyes of the news media. In a puritanical America, the rumors of extramarital affairs and homosexuality could put a star in the rags. The gossip columnists, with their insatiable readerships, held incredible power. Palm Springs was considered the perfect desert retreat.
Today, the city is the fifth most gay-friendly city in the country. According to one study, about one-third of the population is gay. But that doesn’t mean Palm Springs is no longer a low-key place to live. Despite the influx of hipsters, Palm Springs retains its low-key vibe.
