Known for years as the playground to Hollywood’s Elite, Palm Springs is synonymous with glamour and sophistication. Today, with 43% of its population being gay and lesbian, Palm Springs has been called the “gay-friendliest city in North America”. Bump! takes to the skies in a hot-air balloon, floating high above the rolling desert, to view the stunning sunrise. From there we head into the center of town and make our way down the Walk of Stars, celebrating the “who’s who” of Palm Springs, including many gay icons, past and present. Get an up-close look at the lavish estate of Liberace, as we visit with the present owner and learn about the quirky life of the world-renowned pianist. Palm Springs is also known for its luxurious guesthouses that cater to both gays and lesbians. We’ll see how the warm desert climate makes “clothing optional” sunbathing so popular at these stylish lodgings.
