Gay news from across the land …

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

The absurd …a father is suing an Arkansas library because his sons “stumbled across” the Whole Lesbian Sex Book which disturbed them greatly.  I believe the quote is that they had two sleepless nights at his house.  Hmm … The ridiculous …Rudy Guiliani does a big and very public flipflop on civil unions.  In case […]

PG Reader: Loud and Proud Homophobe

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

This morning the PG published a letter from Mark Santucci of Ross who objects to the bias of the PG on gay marriage. The Post-Gazette needs to be more balanced in its story selections. The vast majority of people in Pennsylvania feel that marriage is only between one man and one woman. Traditional marriage, as understood […]

A Little Gay Round Up Makes Everyone Happy

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

New York Governor Elliot Spitzer plans to introduce legislation to legalize same sex marriage in New York.  What can we say other than — yeah! Here in Pittsburgh, Beverly Heights Presbyterian Church voted themselves off the island of mainstream Presbyterianity and into the conservative boat known as the Evangelical Presbyterian Church. But its not about […]

Allegheny County Dems Invite the Gays Over For a Chat

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Just received this announcement about an upcoming event sponsored by the Allegheny County Democratic Committee.  Hmmm … here's my initial reaction.  First, while well intentioned, I think focusing on “issues of concern” puts a bit of a negative spin on the dialogue.  We aren't necessarily going to show up to whine.  Perhaps just GLBT Issues […]
