The editorial staff at
OutTraveler.com takes your travel needs very seriously. We
continually scour the globe on the lookout for gay,
gay-friendly, or queer (in both senses of the word!) events to
put on your gay agenda.

This month, LGBT skiers
and boarders take to the slopes of
Mammoth Lakes

; sunny
Palm Springs

is the site of the mother of all parties,
Mardi Gras

; and boys bound up the gangplank and head for the Mexican
Riviera.

PICK OF THE MONTH

The Dinah 2009

April 1-5, 2009

Palm Springs, Calif.

Even more securely cemented in the lesbian calendar since its
appearance in
The L Word

,
The
Dinah

is set to be the scene of thousands of scantily attired
stunners going wild at events from dance parties to comedy
nights to pool parties. Some of the stars on the bill include
Uh Huh Her, Lady Gaga, the Indigo Girls, Margaret Cho, and Katy
Perry.

START PLANNING FOR
MARCH

Elevation: Mammoth Gay Ski Week

March 18-22, 2009

Mammoth Lakes, Calif.

The seventh annual

Elevation

, a more snowboard-focused week, is the new kid on the gay ski
week slopes, but it is rapidly growing in popularity. The motto
of "zero attitude" appeals to a young crowd that
drives in from Los Angeles and San Diego. This year attendance
is expected to top 2,000. Elevation predominantly attracts
boarding boys, but a few girls join in the fun, too. Daily
apr├Ęs-ski sessions bring out the boarders to various
cool town bars and restaurants. Don't miss the exhilarating
nighttime gondola ride up the mountain from the main lodge to
the Party at 10,000 Feet.
