LocationRancho Mirage, California, USA

Desert Memorial Park is a cemetery in Cathedral City, California, United States, near Palm Springs. Opening in 1956 and receiving its first interment in 1957, it is maintained by the Palm Springs Cemetery District. The District also maintains the Welwood Murray Cemetery in Palm Springs. In 2001, the first American memorial specifically honoring LGBTQ veterans was dedicated in the cemetery, called the LGBTQ Veterans Memorial. In 2018, a bill was signed into law designating that LGBTQ Veterans Memorial as California's official LGBTQ veterans memorial. Due to this, California became the first state in the nation to officially recognize LGBTQ military veterans. The memorial is an obelisk of South Dakotan mahogany granite with the logo of American Veterans for Equal Rights on it.
