Upcoming LGBT Town Hall Meeting

My buddy Jeff Freedman, chair of the Pittsburgh PrideFest Committee gave me the heads up on an upcoming “town hall” meeting to get community input on impending changes in PrideFest.  To summarize, the GLCC has produced PrideFest for the past 5 years or so after it was nearly bankrupted by previous producers.  <I always like […]

Pope Benedict: Homosexuality is a roadblock to world peace

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

From the PG's Forum section comes this reflection on the pontifical peace perspective.  On World Peace Day, Jan. 1, most of the world's citizens will be too poor, too hungry, too surrounded by violence or too worried by this century's other basic challenges to pay attention. Those who do pay attention likely will think first […]

What’s up with the Goodwill Building?

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

While I was blogging about the Hot Metal Faith Community, something from the Post-Gazette article caught my eye.  After communion, as they held candles and sang “Silent Night,” tears streamed down many faces among 450 people at the last worship service that Hot Metal Bridge Faith Community will hold in the South Side's Goodwill cafeteria. […]

Nah Nah! I got the last two tickets to see Gab!

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

This has been one of the worst weeks in a long time.  Saturday afternoon, I was delivering Christmas gifts to foster kids when some jerk ran a red light on Penn Avenue and actually plowed a second car right into my CRV.  I wasn't hurt beyond the usual whiplashy things and my car isn't terribly […]

I actually want the City to chop down this tree …

The tree in front of our house died a tragic death nearly two years ago.  I was sad, nearly as much as when PennDOT and the Redd Up crew slaughtered the perfectly healthy trees in the alley behind my home.  In the ensuing two years, Ledcat and I, along with several neighbors, have dutifully dialed […]

The Hot Metal Church: Traditional Anti-Gay Christianity Wrapped in Punk Rock Clothing?

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

I caught an article in the Post-Gazette about the impending relocation of a local non-traditional faith community  — the Hot Metal Bridge Faith Community.  It seems someone sold the Goodwill Building so the Hot Metal folks are in search of a worship space. The Hot Metal Community is more street than avenue.  Founded by two […]

Merry Christmas

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

I really believe that this song inspired me to become a social worker.  Yes, I know that it is hokey and Eurocentric, but it is still my favorite holiday song and I get a little lump in my throat every time Bono urges me to thank god its them instead of me.  Now I just […]

I’m the victim of identity theft

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Someone has thieved my identity … in the Carnegie Library system. I am not making this up.  Last weekend, when I stopped by Woods Run to renew and pick up some fresh books, I was informed that my account had been coopted and was shut down.  Fortunately, there were no ramifications for me … no […]
