If you spent this week, like me, watching “When We Rise,” the powerful, moving and star-studded ABC TV docudrama miniseries about the LGBT rights movement–from the 1960s until today–you noticed that Palm Springs, California played a significant supporting role.
The series was directed by Gus van Sant, written for the screen by Dustin Lance Black and based on the book “When We Rise: My Life in the Movement” by gay activist Cleve Jones.
In one scene, Cleve’s character says something like, you can’t change the world or start a movement from Palm Springs, so he moves back to San Francisco. He had a point. Palm Springs is where most LGBTQ home owners come for the weekend or to retire. But just because we’re retired doesn’t mean we don’t support those still actively involved on the front lines, through networking connections, fund raising and in other ways.
Just one of the many celebrities and notable individuals to have called Palm Springs home, Cleve’s former Palm Springs home was located in the Warm Sands neighborhood. If you’re ready to call this city–rich in gay history–home, please contact me today at the number listed above.
Pride of ownership takes on a whole new meaning in gay-friendly Palm Springs, California. The city is known internationally as an LGBTQ resort destination and the Chino Canyon neighborhood is no exception. The residents here are as diverse as the homes themselves and on this Gay Pride Weekend the rainbow flags will be flying.
On my morning walk through the Little Tuscany neighborhood of Palm Springs, today, I snapped this pic of one of entertainer Liberace’s former homes.
Elvis Presley lived just a few blocks away and many other celebrities have also called the hillside neighborhood of Little Tuscany home. You can find just about every architectural style of home in this part of town, from historic to newly built.
Please contact me today, if you would like to see any of the homes currently for sale in Little Tuscany, Palm Springs.

The Warm Sands neighborhood of Palm Springs boasts more gay hotels than probably any other neighborhood in this very gay-friendly city. Hundreds, if not thousands of gay travelers, from around the world, visit Palm Springs and stay in Warm Sands hotels each years.
It’s also home to one of the coolest street art sculptures in town (see photo above).
Warm Sands, however, is not just for visitors, vacationers and art lovers. This popular neighborhood, located about a mile from downtown Palm Springs, is also a favorite of home buyers who want to own their own land and who prefer non-gated communities with no monthly homeowner association fees.
You certainly don’t need to be an art lover or gay, to buy a home in this popular subdivision. The centrally located neighborhood offers a very eclectic and diverse mix of architectural home styles, from Spanish and historic to midcentury modern and bungalow for every budget and every lifestyle.
