This just in! Lucy and Gail’s Dinah in Color will be held in Las Vegas at the Green Valley Ranch and Resort in 2010, April 29 through May 2!

The duo just announced their plans to take Palm Springs to Las Vegas for the 2010 Dinah Shore Weekend, including the addition of an extra night.

According to Lucy and Gail, the reason for the move from Palm Springs to Las Vegas for 2010 had to do with the annual Dinah Shore weekend falling over the Easter weekend. They explained that it became clear, after talking to some of their guests that they would lose a large number their attendees to family and religious obligations if they kept the same dates. They also noted the lack of concern over the caliber of hotels available to them during the infamous Dinah Shore Weekend and wanted to better represent their efforts for their clients by offering a 4 star hotel this year.

Dinah in Color is the premiere event for Black lesbians Dinah Shore Weekend, an annual weekend where thousands of lesbians descend upon Palm Springs, California.

Lucy and Gail are already accepting reservations and deposits for next year’s gathering.

I’ve listed some of the preliminary events, packages, and hotel info below.
