Meet Dinah Shore Founder Mariah Hanson
Mariah Hanson, under her Club Skirts Marquis, created the world famous Dinah Shore Weekend in 1991. The original founder of The Dinah, Mariah originally produced The Dinah at the world-renowned Palm Springs Modern Art Museum. Mariah’s first Dinah was sold out, packing every room of the museum, where partygoers drank martini’s while surrounded by tens of millions of dollars worth of art. Mariah also booked entire hotels so that they were 100% lesbian occupied, brought in national sponsors, popular national recording artists, and kept all events in walking distance. The simple but daring concept, of creating a lesbian world within the city, catapulted the Dinah to international fame. Today, The Dinah is considered the largest lesbian event in the world.
