92.9 Lite FM – Not Cool on Gay Bash

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Why I was listening to Gary & Beth on 92.9 Lite FM this morning, I can't tell you.  But Mona was in the backseat so I was just too occupied to change the station.  They were taking calls about “must have” back to school crap.  I heard all about shoes, backpacks, binders, etc.  Then this […]

I should preface by saying the CTN has repeatedly ignored my requests for comment.  I received this through a local queer events email list.
