Gay Couple Gets Star On Palm Springs Walk of Stars

Walk Of Stars
PALM SPRINGS – Local philanthropists Earl Greenburg and David Peet were honored Friday with the 283rd spot on the Palm Springs Walk of Stars, making them the first gay couple to achieve this recognition.
“It’s particularly wonderful for me because I’m with (Peet),” said Greenburg, who already has a spot on the Walk of Stars. “That makes a difference.”
The pair, known for making contributions to several local charities, such as the Desert AIDS Project, were honored during a ceremony held on Palm Canyon Drive outside the Mercado Plaza, where the Sonny Bono statue sits.
The star lists both men’s names and identifies them as “humanitarians.”
Family, friends and colleagues gave kind words to the newest inductees.
“The desert is a better place because of their compassion and kindness,” said friend and philanthropist Harold Matzner, whose star is just a few feet from the one shared by Peet and Greenburg.
“It’s a personal honor to call them my very best friends,” he said Friday.
Peet expressed his thanks and gratitude during the ceremony. He called the experience “very, very humbling.”
