ABOUT DESERT MIGRATION
Short synopsis:
After losing their friends, jobs and health to HIV/AIDS, many men were forced to create new lives, in new places that were more suited to their financial and physical needs. A large number of them migrated to Palm Springs, where a large gay population and health services already existed. Most came here to die…they never expected to thrive.

TAGLINES:
No one arrives in the desert without a story
