City Paper On The Pittsburgh Primary

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

I'm getting ready for my journey to NYC, so I'm going to throw out a few first impressions of the City Paper's cover story ananlyzing the election outcomes, the potential for the three new City Councilpeople-elect, and, of course, where blogs fit into it all.  * Interesting that Patrick Dowd and Bruce Kraus were interviewed […]

Hello, Is this the Allegheny County Democratic Committee?

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Where oh where have my little reps gone, oh where oh where can they be? During a recent heated discussion on the Run, Baby, Run listserv, I realized that I am not sure who my Allegheny County Democratic Committee representatives are.  I moved to this here neck of the woods (Manchester) in 2005 and have […]

Purse Totin’ Tinky Winky Gay – Again?

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Oh those wacky Polish children's rights watchers …. always a day behind and a dollar short.  Remeber back in 1999 when Jerry Falwell deemed Teletubbie Tinky Winky a homo because he carried a purse (TW is the purple one)?  Now Ewa Sowinski is on the same bandwagon.  Well, she way until apparently someone reminder her […]

Pgh on Hate Crimes

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

 I completely missed this.  The Post-Gazette ran an editorial on May 21 opposing extending federal hate crimes legislation to include sexual orientation and gender identity. At the end of the day, we are troubled by making distinctions that implicitly give a greater importance to one crime over a similar one simply because of the motivation […]

Miss Mona holds her own and other stuff of note from Lesbian Central

It has been a roller coaster around Lesbian Central.  Overall, things are good, but Ledcat and I are exhausted (and it is only Monday). As you may recall, Miss Mona began her chemo treatments last week.  She has done remarkably well with only a few minor side effects making an appearance.  Today, she stood in […]

Gay man with local roots named associate helm of Three Rivers Arts Festival

From today's Post-Gazette, I learned that the Three Rivers Arts Festival has recruited a talented young gay man as the associated director.  His name is Chris Taylor, he's from Penn Hills and he describes himself as “single and looking for a domestic partner.”  Love that. Taylor recently earned an M.A. in administration and policy from […]

John Edwards Answers “Gay Issues” Questionnaire from the HRC

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Courtesy of Pam's House Blend I think these answers are consistent with what we've heard so far from John Edwards, along with an clear statement that he supports the repeal of DOMA, which is what stands in the way of marriage equality on paper. Every single candidate who is in favor of civil unions cannot […]

PG Reader: Don’t Impose Christo Morality Code on Others

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

I love letters to the editor, almost as much as I enjoy the comics.  I truly admire folks who take the time to pen a letter, even when I do not admire their perspective or beliefs.  From the perspective of a lesbian blogger, it is valuable for intolerant people to put their prejudice, bigotry and […]


Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Two big McIntire lesbian items of note … First, I'll be around 2:20 this afternoon to chat about Mary Cheney and Heather Poe's baby son.  Second, I got a nice shout out as a “sometimes political” blogger who confirmed Bruce Kraus' gayness.  If you want to know who else is gay, but not open about it […]
