Nice to see Ellen DeGeneres spreading the hate and intolerance …

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Oh my lord … I cannot believe that Ellen DeGeneres has gone from one of the coolest lesbians around to a whiny, spoiled celebrity brat who pouts on national television because she can't get her way.  DeGeneres and her partner adopted a dog from a rescue.  The dog didn't get along with their cats so DeGeneres […]

WDUQ = Editorial Independence? Are you kidding me?

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Does anyone seriously believe that Duquesne University has an iota of credibility with regard to the editorial independence of WDUQ?  Seriously, now?  Anyone? Scott Hanley thinks reporting on their own capitulation to the big D somehow indicates independence.  Duquesne University should do what's in the best interest of the public and surrender the license for […]

Man threatens to shank dog and people think the police are the problem?

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

I love Pittsburgh.  Only here could a jackass like Kenneth King get sympathy for threatening to “shank” a dog.  King, a resident of the Mexican War Streets, walked past a canine unit at the Cedar Avenue Sunoco.  The K-9 dog, Benny, barked at him. From inside the car. Mr. King responded to the bark. The man screamed […]

AFA of PA spinning hate on H.B. 1400 — what are you doing?

Give it up for Diane Gramley, prez and proponent of the American Family Association of Pennsylvania.  She works hard to get her message of hate and intolerance out into the Pennsylvania heartland , be it letter to the editor or press release. She's everywhere the homos should be. Are you? Gramley sent out this snarky […]

What do Potter, Lynn Cullen and Cambodican Kitchen have in common? That would be me ….

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Hey.  I'm in the City Paper this week.  I wrote them a brief letter to the editor about their story on a local transwoman.  They printed it.  On another note, the non-discrimination dinner at Cambodican Kitchen was good fun.  I met a few new ladies and learned a lot of new stuff about some old […]

Do we earn the privilege of being gay?

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

From today's Post-Gazette, a letter written by Kurt Colborn of Swisshelm Park: I have to agree with Sen. Larry Craig's claim that he is not gay. People have forgotten that “gay” is a term of liberation. Being gay means having the maturity to accept yourself as you are. It also means having the courage to […]

I am 27 going on 17, I know that I’m naive …

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Ah, I remember 27 (it was only nine years ago) and it sure as hell didn't look like this: But at the end of the day, I'm still going to continue to be who I'm going to be, and go to concerts like I always have, and go to have a drink with my wife […]

Debate over trans inclusion is creating fissures at the national level, too.

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

You may have been keeping up, via blog or email, with the ongoing debate around the local lesbian community's acceptance and inclusion of transwomen.  It has been contentious and brought to light some long-standing fissures around gender identity that fall loosely along generation lines — almost a second wave v third wave debate, but not […]
