Round Up …kids, politics, films and …lesbians

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

The Post-Gazette has a nice story on the impact of Gay Straight Alliances (GSA's) on local youth.  My favorite quote: “Prejudice begins at home, but I truly believe people can be educated.” The City Paper's Melissa Meinzer explores what H.B. 1400 could mean for Pennsylvanians.  This legislation expands discrimination protections to sexual orientation, gender identity and […]
