Abstract:

"Palm Springs, California, is today probably the most famous gay and lesbian resort in the world. Not only do thousands of gays and lesbians descend on the place for annual spring celebrations, but the city boasts a homosexual population of over 40%, and the second mayor in a row is gay." "How Palm Springs became so gay is the theme of A City Comes Out: How Celebrities Made Palm Springs a Gay and Lesbian Paradise; the first such look at the resort's famous gay and lesbian population as well as the stars who made it famous." "Written by recent Palm Springs resident David Wallace with the same reader-friendly approach that the New York Times called "inspired" when reviewing his 2001 book Lost Hollywood/A City Comes Out will open with a look at the city's "gayness" today, followed by richly detailed, anecdote-filled stories of many of the legendary personalities who, over the decades, were part of its homosexual lifestyle. Among them are Rudolph Valentino, Mary Martin, Janet Gaynor, Rock Hudson, and Tab Hunter." "It is an essential book for gay and lesbian residents, visitors, and tourists, as well as for anyone who loves the movies and the real stories behind the stars' fame."--book jacket.
