Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Timing, as they say, is everything. Just Saturday night, my lover and I took a stroll through the Southside to our favorite Cambodian restaurant and passed by a local confectionary called Chocolate Celebrations and the Milkshake Factory.  You may recall a certain Post-Gazette article fawning over two certain members of this family owned business, siblings […]

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

A few days ago, I received a letter from Mr. Peduto thanking me for attending a house meeting in my neighborhood.  This is how he signed off: “Together we can move Pittsburgh forward.  Together we can win.  I look forward to working closely alongside you to help build a New Pittsburgh.” Today I received the […]

I’m really pissed at Bill Peduto

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Lots of speculation tonight on Bill Peduto's decision to pull out of the mayoral primary race.  Pgh Comet and the Admiral are just a few speculating that Peduto has a master plan to run as an Independent, couldn't raise enough money, or really did refuse to go negative. I've talked briefly with both Political Junkies tonight.  […]

Lesbians Love Bill Peduto

Earlier this week, I attended a community meeting to learn what Bill Peduto has to offer us here on the Northside.  I must admit I was prepared to buy when I walked in the store, but I completely fell in love with the merchandise.  I liked what he had to say about taxes, the gay […]

Post-Gazette and Faggots

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

I missed this letter to the editor from Keith Kondrich of Swisshelm Park (the most Euro sounding neighborhood in Pittsburgh).  Keith took exception with the supporters of Ann Coulter: That harmless little racial joke, that innocent sexual stereotype, that silly political epithet slowly numb us until discrimination, harassment and violence become commonplace, indeed socially acceptable.
