The only thing missing from the agenda is weaving the Mayor's LGBT Advisory Council into the larger event … after all the protest takes place five full days before the deadline to submit nominations.  What a great opportunity to capture some last minute interest.   (And somewhat ironic since the Mayor is on the record as opposing gay marriage and civil unions). 

Still, the location is easy to find, accessible, plenty of parking, coffee at hand, and everything else folks have mentioned.  It is close the holidays, but here's your opportuniy to “Join the Impact” of the LGBTQ Community in Pittsburgh.  Marriage doesn't have to be your issue to motivate you to participate.

  • Wonderful to read that people, especially community leaders, are thinking along the same lines as the everyday folk who read your blog and go about their daily lives. I'm not sure if the planning will enhance or detract from the appealing viral nature of the whole movement, but it is necessary to fuse the grassroots with the established if we are going to move some mountains in Western Pennsylvania. I beg you pardon my unintentional pun.
