It’s been two years since I journeyed to the desert for Club Skirts The Dinah, aka the biggest lesbian party in the universe, but this year’s line-up was too good to miss out on the party. So I’m grabbing my newly purchased DYKE sports bra, my trusty companion Chloe and a camera and heading to Palm Springs this Thursday through Sunday.
Thursday night is the annual comedy show, with one of my faves of all time: Erin Foley.
She’s performing with Fortune Feimster, my first-ever Dinah roommate. We were Dinah virgins together, and I’ll never forget.
Also doing some comedy situations: Gina Yashere, who I have not seen before and have heard great things about.
“I have no idea what to expect or what we’ll be doing but it sounds hilarious and awesome,” Chloe said. “Since I’m AfterEllen’s resident single gal (gal is my least favorite word and I only use it sarcastically), married muffins Trish and Karman often encourage me to get it as much as possible, but I’ve been on a conservative twist and let them down lately vis-a-vis sluttiness. To compensate, I’ve promised them selection and veto power over any and all of my potential Dinah hookups. I’m really looking forward to making out with beautiful, horrible girls from, like, New York who I’ll never have to see again.”
Our AfterEllen pool party on Friday is going to have some rad cherry chapstick. (Duh.)
That evening is a One More Lesbian Dinah Film Festival with some of your faves from web series like Little Horribles, Nikki & Nora and Girl Gets Girl in attendance, like Aasha Davis and Marnie Alton.
I cannot WAIT to see Iggy Azalea perform Friday night. If you’re not familiar with the rapper, I know you’ll love this Clueless-inspired video she made with Charlie XIX.
