Small changes in this hard world

Sometimes, the best part of a mystery novel is a few pages after the crime is solved. Last weekend, I picked up Sara Paretsky's latest at the library.  I was looking forward to visiting with my old friend V I Warshawski over the weekend while I recuperated from the vetiges of the flu.  That it was […]

Are lesbians allowed in the North Hills?

Are lesbians allowed in the North Hills?

Who the heck waits 45 minutes on a Wednesday night to eat at Olive Garden?  in Pittsburgh!   Needing a meal while doing errands on McNightmare Road last Weds night, we grudgingly decided that cookie-cutter Italian food was the best option among the chain restaurants.  I should have known something was amiss when I encountered a […]

Lesbian Take on Brokeback Mountain

Lesbian Take on Brokeback Mountain

I hope you do go see this soon.  I am a total loss for words to describe howwonderful this movie is.  The cinematography is stellar, but so is thestoryline and the acting.  Heath Ledger blew me away, definitely an Oscarworthy performance.  Michelle Williams (played his wife) was also stunninglygood for a former Dawson's Creek star.

From 365gay.com, I discover that yet another Bible Belt NBC affiliate has capitulated to the right-wing hate regarding homosexuality and cancelled the Book of Daniel.  According to WSMV mangement, they received over 137 complaints via telephone, email and postal mail.  And apparently the independent nature of the 137 responses caught their attention “Over the years, […]

The Boondocks on Gay Marriage

  I am a regular read of The Boondocks strip in the PG, but I must confess that I am often confounded.  I get the feeling that I'm definitely not “in” on the real humorous element and/or the real spin on the issue.  But I suppose that is how any white middle class lesbian would […]

PG Review of Brokeback Mountain

PG Review of Brokeback Mountain

From today's paper.  My favorite lines Having seen “Brokeback Mountain,” I can promise you two things: It's not a social contagion planted on the screen to infect America's youth, and the water-cooler comics who've been making all those gay-cowboy jokes without seeing the film are going to look really stupid on Monday morning.
