Lez Reunite

It really isn't that there's a dearth of LGBTQ news to analyze and share.  I'm just not feeling it lately.  I have this weird kidney thing going on (not diabetes related at all, thank god) and I basically drag myself out of bed every single day feeling like a dishrag.  The one you tossed into […]

Things That Matter

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Tonight, Ledcat and I visited our nephew at Children's Hospital.  He has pneumonia. He is 10 weeks old.  He looked good. He was cooing and wriggly and hungry and breathing well.  His parents have been on a round robin for days now, juggling his needs with the care of their toddler.  Tomorrow, we'll be with […]

Lauren Weedman, Goddess of Funny

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Yesterday, Ledcat and I were trotting up Liberty Avenue to grab some dinner with our friends Tom and Harry after wrapping up our PrideFest activities when I saw her.  Sitting at the City Theatre table.  Actually, I saw the sign first “Meet Lauren Weedman, Goddess of All that is Funny and Smokin Hot” or something like […]

Highlights of My Pride

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

The Dyke March.  Was. Awesome.  I was very impressed with how well the ladies pulled off a switch from Oakland to the Downtown area.  From our vantage, the event was smooth and made quite an impact on the multitude of downtowners watching us march past.  I think the switch was good and added more visibility […]

I’m proud of Gab

Gab is having a comedy show at Club Cafe on Saturday night at 10 PM.  It is not an official Pride event, but Gab is part of the emcee lineup at PrideFest and a long-time supporter of many, many queer organizations. She's also a local comedian. If you need a good laugh and can appreciate edgy humor, […]

Registry Plans Update

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

According to the office of Councilman Bruce Kraus, the Domestic Partner Registry legislation will be signed by Luke with a swishy flair at Pride events over the weekend.  (I added the part about the swishy flair.  Kraus' staff were more professional).  I love this.  Luke opposes civil unions, but somehow gets to be the Mayor […]

PG story on regional gay rural life

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Great story from the Post-Gazette People labeled Patrick Arena “a fairy” early on. As the only boy in tap classes at the Vella School of Dance in Washington, Pa., in the 1960s, he was taunted and whispered about. “Truth was, I knew I was gay, but I certainly wouldn't admit it,” says Mr. Arena, 57, […]

Resistry Approved; Other Stuff

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

City Council approved plans to create a domestic partner registry 7-1.  Now we await the Mayor's signature.  Here's the full PG story. On a personal note, Ledcat and I are one of five same-sex couples receiving domestic partner benefits through the City.  Five.  That underwhelms me.  Five.  Seriously?  That would seem to warrant a second […]
