It’s a Shore thing



Dinah Shore has been on my lesbian bucket list ever since that episode of The L Word aired back in 2004. So when the opportunity to go to Palm Springs for the biggest girl party in the world came knocking, I was packing my bags faster than you can say “Who killed Jenny?”

I wasn’t the only one with Dinah Shore on my bucket list. My friend Ania, a self-confessed L Word superfan, has wanted to go for years, so when I mentioned my trip over a couple of drinks, she decided then and there that she’d be coming too.

So, with reluctant approval from our wives, we set out planning an epic adventure that Ilene Chaiken would be proud of, but with a little less Jenny Schecter…

Our Dinah experience began with the opening party at Zelda’s nightclub. I feel like I’m newly out again, walking into a gay club for the first time like a baby lesbian to the slaughter. We arrive late, far too sober, and the party is already in full swing. Before I can even get a drink from the bar, a woman has bent me over and is pretending to penetrate me with what looks like a rainbow lightsabre, while a go-go dancer thrusts her bum in my face. In the Dinah episode of The L Word, the dearly departed J Schecter said she’d “never seen such debauchery in my whole life” and as I take myself off to the bathroom to recover, I find myself agreeing with her.
