When T.S. Eliot opened his magnum opus, “Wasteland” with the words, “April is the Cruelest month” he had no idea how false his words would ring decades later when thousands of women from many parts of the world would come to Palm Springs, California for the Dinah Shore Weekend.


Held annually every April, “The Dinah” features a wild gathering of women, artists, parties and other events celebrating the lesbian life. It is the largest gathering of its kind in the world.

As far as parties go, nothing at The Dinah is as highly anticipated as the “White Party.” This year the event will be held on April 5 at the Hotel Zoso and its top act is none other than the Australian sensation, Havana Brown.

Having turned 27 on Valentine’s Day, Brown has been making a name for herself ever since her DJ days, touring with the likes of Britney Spears, Rihana, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry. However, not content with playing other people’s music behind the turntables, Brown came around to center stage, singing her way to the top of the charts with such hits as “When the Lights Go Out” and “We Run the Night.”


With festival goers anticipating a fun-filled night for those lucky enough to score tickets, Lesbian News thought it would be a good idea to catch up with Brown to get her thoughts about music, America, Australia, gay rights and other revealing aspects of the life of this rising star.
