Philly Anti-Gay Protestors Arrest OK court rules

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Not feeling so well today so I'm going to cheat.  From 365gay.com and the Philadelphia Daily News comes word that bigotry does not always win. (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) A federal judge has ruled that the city of Philadelphia did not violate the rights of an anti-gay group when it arrested them during a protest at the city's gay […]

Ravenstahl “There’s more than one reason to handcuff a man”

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Now that Main Stream Media (MSM) has sunk its teeth into this little tale of a man and his handcuffs, the gay drama just escalates.  This is like Queer Eye meets Cops. WPXI airs previous interview where Ravenstahl plays word games to essentially deny being handcuffed.  If he didn't actually lie about it, he omitted […]

Ravenstahl, McIntire, Pgh City Police: The Gay Angle No One is Talking About

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Not a single homo involved and this story has more twists and turns than a drag queen's virginal encounter with panty hose, a site much prettier than watching Luke Ravenstahl contort an explanation out of this story.  If you read the subtext, its right out of a gay movie — Slightly inebriated guy meets guy in uniform, intense […]

Is Pittsburgh a Gay Tourist Mecca? Post-Gazette Readers Chime In

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Earlier in the week, our beloved Post-Gazette took a half-hearted look at Pittsburgh's potential as a gay tourist destination (or not).  Someone beyond your faithful correspondents noticed and took the time to share their perspective with the PG readership. First, we have the “tolerant” homophobe who believes in live and let live as long as […]

Pittsburgh Gay Round Up : McIntire, McCain, and Madison, Wisconsin

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Not much happening locally in the LGBTQ world.  No rancid letters to the editor, no debates over GSAs in the local schools, no closets being opened. Peduto's announcement is good news for those of us who want an actual Democrat, not the Yinzer Republican Prince in sheep's, oops, lamb's clothing. For the chicas, coming up […]

We predict city Solicitor will take fall for Ravenstahl

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Our prediction on the McNeilly/Regan situation – Acting city Solicitor George Specter will resign or retire, Ravenstahl will continue to blame the O'Connor administration and the city will settle with McNeilly prompting her to retire immediately afterwards. The Ravenstahl puppetmasterers will easily sacrifice one lawyer to keep their golden Pinnochio bright, shiny and electable. Our […]

Anti-Rene Portland sentiment flares in Michigan

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

According to an online edition of Michigan's LGBTQ newsletter, a group of 300+ straight and gay women wore lavender shirts to the recent University of Michigan/Penn State women's basketball game. Sunday's protest served as a triumphant moment for gay folks, especially considering the massive turnout. It showed that there are people in the state of […]

Post-Gazette Looks at “Gay-Friendliness” of Pittsburgh without talking to the gays!

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Usually, I enjoy MacKenzie Carpenter's articles … sort of like curling up in your bathrobe with a warm cup of coffee and the tattered copy of “Pride and Prejudice” or “The Brothers Karamazov.”  Sure the predictability is there, but you never tire of the artistry, the divine spark that generated such a wonderful read. So […]
