Gay Desert Hot Springs

DHS Mayor Scott Matas Is A Very Strong Supporter Of The DHS LGBTQ+ Community. Show Your Support By Endorsing Him For Re-Election

Posted on January 17, 2024

Scott has been a tremendous friend of the Desert Hot Springs LGBTQ+ community.  He’s not afraid of us, he doesn’t hate us, he doesn’t avoid us or ignore us.  On the contrary, he hangs out with us regularly and appoints us to responsible positions on City Commissions and numerous other committees that impact on the future of DHS.  He understands the issues that affect us on a personal level. Scott has marched and ridden in multiple Palm Springs Pride Festivals, proudly representing Desert Hot Springs. How many Mayors do that?  Scott has attended both Desert Hot Springs Pride Festivals, again proudly representing our City Council and showing his support for our community. He was instrumental in facilitating the three very successful Police Open House events for the LGBTQ community that were held at City Hall, the most recent one having taken place just months ago. It was during this last open house that Police Chief Henson announced the appointment of Officer Celia Romero, to the position of Police Liaison to the LGBTQ community. That’s a first for our city. Thanks Mayor Matas and Chief Henson! And Scott also did something that is rarely seen, even in the Coachella Valley: On June 21, 2022 he issued the City’s first Proclamation declaring June 2022 as LGBTQ+ Pride Month.  He’s no Trumper.  He’s no hater. He’s no bully. He has been and continues to be our friend and supporter. In a world where politicians want to “erase” gay people, we in DHS are very, very lucky. We can’t forget that.
