Ethylina Canne returns to host the 5th annual Queen of the Desert So-Cal lip sync competition benefiting Desert AIDS Project. The event has moved to a new venue this year and will be held at the Camelot Theatres (The Palm Springs Cultural Center). Book tickets early because this event always sells out.
Six drag queens compete for the title of Queen of the Desert, decided by a panel of local celebrities, while attendees vote for their Fan Favorite by donating dollar bills. This high energy event is attended by 725 local residents and is sponsors by local bars that feature drag shows. The event is accessible to everyone in the community because of its low ticket price of $20 for general seating.
