Unintended Casualties: Another Example of Anti-Gay Impact on Unsuspecting Heterosexuals

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

PG writer Sally Kalson tackles the thorny issues of surrogate pregnancy custody in response to a recent court ruling removing custody of triplets from their surrogate mother.  It is a complicated, sticky mess and certainly deserving of some attention for our legislature. However, PA plans to establish a legal framework in surrogacy matters will tap into […]

Update on PA Marriage Amendment – good news

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

From The Center for Lesbian and Gay Civil Rights comes word that the Pennsylvania House of Representatives has recessed without taking action on the amendment. What exactly does that mean?

Why Pgh Catholic Schools should contact GLSEN

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

From last week's Tribune-Review, I found this little item about a young Catholic middle school child who was the victim on-line bullying.  According to his mother, classmates put up a faux My Space profile identifying the young man as gay.  This happened hand in hand with unspecific physical bullying.  So what happened to this kid?  […]
