Events to watch out for

Good information to have:

In Sisterhood

Pittsburgh has a long history of producing entrepreneurs, philanthropists, artists, and musicians. What is less well known is that the region was also the birthplace of some influential leaders of the women's movement and was home to several pioneering feminist organizations during the latter part of the 1900s. In Sisterhood: The Women's Movement in Pittsburgh is an oral history project designed to promote a deeper understanding and appreciation of this inspiring aspect of the region's history and to highlight how progress was achieved through the hard work and determination of a diverse group of local grassroots activists.

Also, coming out in October is Gab Bonesso's Gayest Comedy Show ever Saturday, October 11 at 9:00 PM at the BrilloBox

Tickets will cost $5 and the show is for people ages 21 and over.  The show will feature some of Pittsburgh's premiere gay, part-gay, gay-friendly and “gay as in odd” comedians.  The event will be hosted by WQED's John McIntire (in drag).  Comedians slated to feature are Stoopid, John Pridmore, Jason Kirsch and Roxie.  Comedian Gab Bonesso is scheduled to headline.  Audience members will enjoy material about topics such as Jason Kirsch growing up gay in Amish country or John Pridmore discussing his “Lesbian Mother” or Gab Bonesso ripping into Fred Phelps or Roxie just being odd.  If you've come out of the closet or have known someone who has come out of the closet or you're just a huge fan of the song, “I'm Coming Out” then this show is for you!  Special Show Surprise: One local comedian will be coming out of the closet on stage for the first time ever!!!  Don't miss this event!
