Update on Allegheny County Council Anti-Discrimination Ordinance

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

It is important that you stay in the loop to keep the pressure on our County Council to pass a good version of this ordinance.   You know the turnout for the hearing was good.  You know that the ordinance was referred back to committee for further consideration and no date has been set for a […]

You can convert my tv, but you can’t convert me

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Yesterday, Congress refused to extend the deadline to switch over from regular signals that have served us well since the dawn of the 50's to the new digital signals.  Do I sound bitter? Yes, yes I am bitter. Ledcat and I do not have cable.  It isn't a noble gesture of anti-consumerism.  It is a […]

Saddlebacking defined and more …

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Courtesy of After 8 Pgh comes word that Dan Savage finally announces the definition of Saddlebacking.  Hilarious.  Savage's explanation here.

This is an issue we just tend to shy away from here in Pittsburgh.  The […]

Same Sex Ballroom Dance Lessons

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

This looks like big fun.  I've always wanted to learn how to ballroom dance.  Getting dressed up and attending the Lambda Ball was a big thrill for me.  I love when people design these things for same sex couples so that folks can be comfortable.  I'd posit that a mixed-couple session should be the way […]

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Check out the Post Gazette's new community forum.  There are some bugs in the program, but it does make the paper more interactive.  More reading to fit into my day.  Sigh.   Check it out:  http://community.post-gazette.com/

PG Letters to the Editor on County Anti-Discrimination Bill

Ray McGogney of Shaler sees right through the culture wars.  His letter to the editor in the Post-Gazette shatters the right-wing argument that the County Anti-Discrimination legislation is going to limit the religious freedom of anyone.  The anti-discrimination bill before County Council (“Discrimination Bill Draws Large Crowd,” Jan. 16) has nothing to do with personal […]
