General Round Up

Not a lot to report on the local front.  The dueling marriage equality bills are not generating the outpouring of letters to the editor we experienced in 2006 and 2008.  Maybe you could write one

Everyone and their brother wants to be involved in the G-20 summit. There's really no gay angle, however.  Unless the County Council …finally … passes the non-discrimination ordinance and we can join 14 other Pennsylvania municipalities in the economic forefront.  We have no real LGBTQ economic hook here in Pittsburgh.  We do have, however, the opportunity to take a closer look at LGBTQ global issues.  What's life look like for the average homo in the G-20 nations?  More to come on that …

Chime in if anything floats your boat.
