The Coachella Valley in Southern California is a historic destination for multiple reasons. Initially, the area received notoriety as the "Playground of the Presidents" due to the frequent vacationing in the region of various Commanders-in-Chief. Visits from Herbert Hoover, John F. Kennedy, and Ronald Reagan were quite common. More significantly, Gerald Ford and Dwight Eisenhower bought homes in the area.

Palm Springs is notorious as one of the most well-known gay communities in the United States and was recently named the world's best place for Gay and Lesbian seniors to visit and retire. However, world-famous festivals, Coachellafest, Stage Coach, and Power Trip have led to newfound publicity for all our desert communities - worldwide. Due to the desert's popularization as a vacation and music festival destination, the permanent residency is growing at a neck-breaking pace as one of the fastest population increases in California. With this growth comes an uptick of families and young professionals seeking local organizations and engagement opportunities.

Therefore, we decided to rebrand our local chapter as the Log Cabins of the Coachella Valley to accommodate ever-growing residency throughout the desert communities. We launched in June 2021 during Pride Month as a reminder that we serve as the largest Gay & Lesbian organization in Riverside County and welcome all conservatives into our tent who acknowledge the existence and benefit of commonsense in our society.

The Log Cabin Republicans is the nation's largest conservative organization dedicated to representing Gay, Lesbian, and supporting conservative allies. For over 30 years, we have promoted the fight for true equality of opportunity through our state and local chapters, our full-time office in Washington, DC, and our federal and state Political Action Committees (PACs) which includes the Log Cabin Institute 501(c)3.
