Letters Round Up and Shout out to Cat Specter

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Kudos to Dick Marshall of Crafton for penning a letter to the PG on the topic of gay civil rights.  Hearing so many voices from the pulpits in this country condemning relationships like mine while not so subtly telling us whom to vote for is both hurtful and incongruent with the hope that many of […]
