The Post Where I Thank the Delta Foundation of Pittsburgh

One of the ugliest things about bullying is that it isolates the target. I’ve been feeling very isolated this past week, reaching out for support and action from LGBTQ organizations and allies. I contacted statewide groups, local groups, members of Pittsburgh City Council, and more. Because that’s how allies are supposed to behave – when […]

Pittsburgh Marathon Defends Chick-fil-A Partnership

Chick-fil-A Pittsburgh Marathon

Yesterday, I blogged about the Dick’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon bringing on Chick-fil-A as the title sponsor of their youth programming, including the Chick-fil-A Kids Marathon. People began contacting the Marathon offices known as the non-profit, P3R. Early responses indicated that the staff were in a meeting to discuss the blowback. A few hours later, […]

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Based on new information, it is unclear if this actually happened as was originally described. We will wait for a police report to update this post. Anyone who has information should contact the Zone One police department in Pittsburgh.

Because Rape is Funny if its GAY …

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

I saw this last week, but it is all over the place now and just thoroughly vulgar and disgusting.  The reputation of the Pittsburgh Steelers likely took another hit today with the news that Steely McBeam, the team's official mascot, has been accused of sexual assault in an incident late last night at a downtown […]

Suzie McConnnell-Serio to replace Rene Portland? And what does JoePa think?

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

The PG's Bob Smizik takes Penn State to task for allowing Portland to ride roughshod over university standards, policies and common decency. It's not like the Harris incident was the first against Portland. She had a long and documented history on the subject. As far back as 1986, Portland was quoted making an anti-lesbian statement. […]

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Here's a tidbit of good gay-tidings! STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Penn State women's basketball coach Rene Portland resigned today, ending a 27-year tenure in which she won 606 games but battled allegations that she discriminated against lesbian players. Portland resigned last night, the university said in a statement this morning. Hurrah!  Hurrah!   More later …. […]

The Trib – Joey Porter’s slurs offensive to some

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Imagine if Joey Porter mated with Ann Coulter … they could spit out homobigot puppies left and right, well mostly just right.  I just had to chime in on this.  The Tribune Review printed a list of Joey's highs and lows during his Steeler tenure. I won't recant all the amazing athletic feats he accomplished […]

Buh Buh Joey Porter: Gay Bashing Steeler Cut Loose to Free Agency

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Sometimes greed can be a dyke's best friend.  In this case, it means Joey Porter will take his trash-talking bigotry and hit the road for greener pastures.  I don't care if he made 879 tackles last year and was Most Valuable Stud three years running or even if he did single-handedly hold back the entire […]

The Trib Weighs in on Gay Sheep and Tim Hardaway

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Local opinion seems to be that our own con-alternative paper, the Tribune Review, is pretty anti-gay.  The fact, however, is that most of their gay coverage has been consistent with mainstream thought on gays — we aren't so bad after all, its not such a big deal, don't we have better things to worry about […]

How Long Until Hardaway Ends Up In Rehab?

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

“I don't hate gay people,” [Tim] Hardaway said. “I'm a goodhearted person. I interact with people all the time. … I respect people. For me to say 'hate' was a bad word, and I didn't mean to use it.” That's apology-take two.  He didn't mean to hate on us.  And he's surprised at the reaction […]
