Lucy and Gail began in 2003 with an event called Dinah in Color which was intended to provide an identifiable space for women of color to come together during the Dinah Weekend in Palm Springs. This eventually grew beyond Palm Springs borders into annual trips to places like San Francisco and Las Vegas. These vacations included tours, dances, concerts and a variety of cultural experiences.

In 2013 Lucy and Gail formed a non-profit, the Palm Springs Women’s Jazz Festival, and began producing an annual jazz festival in Palm Springs featuring female jazz and blues artists. The 2020 Festival was cancelled because of the Corona virus.

In 2019 they introduced Palm Springs Women’s Week which was 7 days and 21 events Celebrating Lesbian Culture and Thought. The week include an art exhibit, celebrity chef, conferences on empowerment and women’s health and was anchored by the Jazz Festival.

In 2020 planning has begun for a Queer Women’s Art Festival that will feature women artists and craftswomen from around the country for a major virtual exhibit of their work.

Through out this journey their goal has always been to promote Lesbian culture and enhance Lesbian political and economic clout.
