While researching Warm Sands for a project, I read an article on Daryl James which, in turn, led me to you. If I didn't believe in fate previously, I certainly do now. Please get in touch. -Chris

Takes me back 30 years! I lived in La Quinta from '84 - 90 (the heat finally chased me out - that, and the sadness of losing almost all my friends to HIV).


I fondly remember Cal & Ron, Richard Flynn, Daddy David & Rob, Clyde Sioux (god bless that wonderful man), Bobby Ford, Chuck Kee, Michael White, Craig Corbett & Beatty (and Brian!), Bob Mellon and most especially Peter Tangel, who I think of every living day
and miss him desperately, even all these years since he passed. Barber Don, Tacky David, the Birdbath Girls (!), Lady Di - the list goes on and on. If anybody has updates on the whereabouts of any of the survivors of those heady days, drop me a line. Some
of the happiest days of my life were spent in Palm Springs.

I'm wondering if you would be so kind as to get in touch with me - I'm a journalist who writes a lot of LGBT history pieces on the desert. Thanks! mrlinkk@aol.com, 646-644-5465

One of the best memories was behind the DP (aka bushes) when "Lady Di" (resident drag queen that never put on a show, except when she drank and fell off her bar stool) fell in one of the abandoned water wells. Fire Dept. was called and had to rescue her.
And without a missed beat, she asked if the Fireman would go back in the pit to look for her other high heel. Oh, the stories she had.

I met Clyde Sioux Halloween 1982 when he was arrested in his Superman costume & egged on to break out of jail by his cellmates in Indio.
