Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Mike Seate of the Tribune Review posits some new additions to Pittsburgh's lexicon.  One of these is the term “gaybee” referring to children parented by gay people. Huh.  Funny?  I like this one: Recent Square:  Person who moves from suburbs to Regent Square and immediately adopts the heavily pierced, thrift-store fashion sense of local hipsters. […]

Ellen DeGeneres and the Founding Fathers

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Craig Galik of Duquesne is not pleased.  Apparently, when he tunes in to the Ellen DeGeneres show, he doesn't expect to see any lesbian claptrap. Imagine his horror when Ellen spoke about her plans to marry partner, Portia De Rossi.  On television.  In front of viewers.  Gay stuff.  Either Craig is the only person on […]

Blogging is a lesbian thing

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

You probably saw the giant face and know that we have a new dog.  I've been blogging like mad about her over at But the LGBTQ worlds needs some attention, too. First up, the latest letter to the editor in the Post-Gazette. Jay Jarrell of McMurray drags out the arguments that marriage is about […]

Ana’s Big Day

Ana is here.  Check out her first lesbian adventures at  

Newest Correspondent

So, we might be adopting a dog on Monday.  Her name is Ana and she is a Chihuaha mix.  She was rescued.  She lives with big dogs and has lived with cats in the past.  She weighs 9 lbs. Ana comes from Starfish to the Sea Animal Rescue. Ledcat has a rescue friend that is […]

Gab Bonesso is My Friend and Man, Is She a Funny Woman

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

The Correspondents love Gab.  She's funny and smart and plays a mean game of Trouble.    Anyhoo, Gab has gathered up the four funny women in Pittsburgh for what promises to be a very cool show on Saturday, May 31, 2008.  This is my favorite kind of show.  Women. Non-smoking.  Saturday night.  And $10 tickets.  […]

Correction on the Campaign Event for Luke Ravenstahl

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

I have been informed that individuals invited to the LGBT luncheon with Luke Ravenstahl are not being required to make a campaign contribution.  They are invited to do so, as their discretion. I don't know all the ins and outs of these sort of invitations, so I'm going to take this information at its word.  […]

Another Pro Homo Letter to the Editor

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

From Tuesday's Post-Gazette.  Always good to read a hit-the-nail-on-the-head letter. Like letter writer Kim Winbush (“Let's Keep Discrimination Out of the Pa. Constitution,” May 16), I too was happy to see the Pennsylvania Senate table the Marriage Protection Amendment. This brazen attempt to pander to the theocratic aims of the religious right must be opposed […]

Luke and the Gay Luncheon … You Knew There Was More To The Story …

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

As we discussed earlier in the week, plans are underway for LGBT “supporters of Luke” to get together with him over lunch to discuss LGBT issues.  A few key LGBT designated leaders have been invited.  This was confirmed by local LGBT business owner and chair of the Delta Foundation, Gary Van Horn, in the comments […]

Ulf, Canine Cop, Responsible for Every Civil Rights Violation in the History of Pittsburgh

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

What's more important for local social justice – the stability of the Thomas Merton Center or the culpability of a dead police dog?  I'd like to ask Carole Weidmann that question.  Carole's pants were ripped during an anti-war protest a few years ago and the culprit may have been Ulf, the dog who was shot […]
