Club Skirts Dinah Shore Weekend, commonly referred to as "The Dinah," is a popular and iconic annual event held in Palm Springs, California. It is the largest and most prominent lesbian and queer women-focused festival in the world. Founded in 1991 by Mariah Hanson under the Club Skirts umbrella, the event initially started as a golf tournament catering to the LGBTQ+ community. Over the years, it has evolved into a massive five-day extravaganza featuring pool parties, live music, comedy shows, celebrity appearances, and various recreational activities.

The Dinah typically takes place in late March or early April, coinciding with the ANA Inspiration ( formerly known as the Kraft Nabisco Championship ), a major women's golf tournament held in Rancho Mirage, California. The timing is no accident, as the festival was initially designed to cater to the large number of lesbian golf fans who traveled to the area to watch the tournament.

A significant aspect of the Dinah is its dedication to promoting women's empowerment, inclusivity,  and acceptance within the LGBTQ+ community. Over the years, the festival has provided a platform for up-and-coming LGBTQ+ artists and performers, as well as more established acts. The event has showcased various celebrity guests, including Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Tegan and Sara, and Salt-N-Pepa, to name a few.

The Dinah is often compared to a "lesbian spring break" due to the energetic and lively atmosphere.  Attendees come from all over the world to enjoy the sense of community, celebration, and freedom that the event provides. Many people see the Dinah as a vital safe space where they can express themselves openly and without fear of judgment.

While the focus is on lesbian and queer women, the Dinah is open to everyone who supports the LGBTQ+ community. Over the years, it has become a symbol of pride, unity, and strength within the LGBTQ+ world.
