The Desert Business Association promotes and supports LGBT and allied businesses and professionals who have joined together for business promotion, economic development, educational and humanitarian purposes.



Connecting, Promoting and Building Prosperity by embracing all members of our community to make a positive difference.

About Us

The Desert Business Association has been committed to the promotion of LGBT businesses and allied businesses since 1979. We are Coachella Valley’s only gay business association. We assist members in the promotion and development of their businesses by providing networking receptions, educational seminars, advertising opportunities, a member directory, member promotions and discounts, events and event participation.
DBA relationships reach throughout Southern California as well as all eight communities of the Coachella Valley. We encourage members to actively participate in all the benefits we offer by leveraging their existing DBA relationships which, in turn, will help them build new relationships needed to expand and flourish.
In addition to our business-centric goals, the DBA recognizes and lends financial support to 501(c)3 charitable organizations. Charitable work in the Coachella Valley is important to our quality of life and critical to the LGBT community.
We encourage members to get involved and make a difference. We have many committees and our directors are sometimes challenged to meet all our needs. We appreciate on-going member input and committee participation is a productive way for the board to hear what the membership has to say and to hear what the membership wants.
We sincerely hope to hear from you, soon. Thank you for joining us on our website today!
