When I began blogging, I dedicated many posts to the letters to the editor to demonstrate that civil minded people were speaking out on LGBTQ issues. This pretty much requires me to search the papers daily with LGBTQ keywords (typically, gay and homosexual — the fact that stories about lesbisn WITHOUT the word gay is for another day).
Something I've noticed of late is that the newish feature of commenting in PG letters often brings up LGBTQ comments and most of them are positive. This is an interesting twist in online discourse. I myself rarely if ever comment online at the PG simply because I spend so much time commenting on my blog and Facebook, but I do read the comments.
