Democratic, Republican and Senate Leaders Remain Silent in the Face of Anti-Gay Rhetoric

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

I am disappointed.  It has been more than 72 hours since John Eichelberger of the Pennsylvania State Senate uttered his hateful comment that he is “allowing” gay persons to exist.  Everyone knows. This hits to my blog post and the one at 2 Political Junkies are filled with visitors from all sorts of chambers and governmental […]

City Paper publishes article on Council hearing (are you paying attention, PG?)

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Melissa has the story at the City Paper. She covered the Allegheny County Council hearing on a proposed Human Rights Commission.  She talked to pro-ordinance folks.  She talked to anti-ordinance folks.  She considers multiple angles on the gay rights versus religious freedoms issues.  All in all, she does a pretty good job covering the event.  […]

Equality

I don't have much time to blog today.  It was hard to find time to watch the inauguration and there's always work and laundry.  More is happening with the Club Pittsburgh criminal investigation and new toxicology findings. Find that at KDKA Investigations. We are waiting for some more details to come out before commenting any further. I […]

Also worth watching.  I'm not glued to the inaugural events, but I am curious as to how it shakes out for our community.  I picked this up courtesy of Pam's House Blend.
