PG Reader – Jesus Isn’t Running a Buffet!

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Matt Huffmyer of Westview has had it with pick and choose Christians who toss out all the good Old Testament stuff b/c Jesus didn't talk about it.  Stuff like homosexuality and porn.  Jesus said that He came to fulfill the law and the prophets. They clearly state that any type of sexuality outside of the […]

Kennywood De-Gays Pirate Show, Pleads For Homos to Stop Calling

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Queers 1, Kennywood 0.  As we reported last week, Kennywood, the bastion of local family fun, was producing a pirate themed show that featured homophobic content … lispy voice, gay kissing panic, you know the drill.  In response to a complaint, Kennywood General Manager Jerome Gibis said he didn't find the content offensive and wasn't going […]

The Trib on Pittsburgh Lesbian Scene – Huh?

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

OK, this just strikes me as weird.  The Tribune-Review sent a reporter to OUTrageous Bingo to do a story on the lack of a lesbian scene in Pittsburgh.  “Lesbian scene” should always be read as “no lesbians bars,” but we'll get to that in a moment. OUTrageous Bingo is a mixed event – gay men, […]

Gaylettres to the Editor and other gay stuff

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

You mean other stuff happened yesterday?  Here's a smattering … Scott Weber of Shaler wrote to the Post-Gazette urging people to recognize the value of gay parenting. In describing his country's new civil partnership law, British Prime Minister Tony Blair spoke about what he called “the civilizing effect” the policy has had on society far […]

Bill Peduto on the “coming of age” of Pittsburgh democrats

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

I chatted with my friend Councilman Bill Peduto about the election outcome and congratulating him.  The Burghosphere has been bursting with analysis of the Peduto impact — the Pedutocrats. Here's what Bill had to say about it all (I refer to him as Bill on account of us being friends n'at.): “Thanks, Sue – but it wasn't […]
