Get the family and go


Familes in the Desert – Save the Date, October 26-28

Families in the Desert 2012 will be held Friday October 26 – Sunday, October 28 at the Embassy Suites Palm Desert


Twice I have attended the Families in the Desert, and both times it was a wonderful time for the whole family.  The event is a three-day weekend full of family-friendly events for LGBT families that features Parent & Youth Cafés, musical performances, movie night, children’s book reading and more!

The 2012 Families in the Desert celebrates the Family Equality Council’s 30th anniversary and its efforts to create a better world for our community of LGBT families.

During the Families in the Desert weekend, LGBT families and friends will gather for Families in the Desert 2012 in the glorious Palm Springs area – a beautiful and scenic location, rich with a long history of welcoming the LGBT community.

The 2012 Families in the Desert’s unique blend of the vacation experience and family-style programming will include:

  • Parent & Youth Cafés
  • Family-style meals
  • Activity options, like swimming, hiking, tennis, and badminton
  • Arts and crafts
  • Seasonal events, like a costume contest, face-painting and prize giveaways
  • A magical Saturday Night family event
  • And fun galore!

This is a getaway for LGBT families like no other – see you in Palm Springs!
