Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

The Post-Gazette has the story on a recent decision by Westmoreland County Community College to extract two classes from their non-discrimination language.  Since 2000, Westmoreland County Community College has published notices saying the school will not discriminate against individuals based on various circumstances, including their “sexual orientation” and “union membership.” But the school now says […]

How do Jon and Kate + 8 fit into the equal marriage debate?

Justin Kidd of Squirrel Hill has definitely put a very modern twist on the marriage equality debate.  Kidd references the tabloid sensation of the allegedly disintegrating marriage of the TLC reality family, Jon and Kate.

Letter to the Editor: PG didn’t go deep enough on marriage analysis

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

I think Donna Evans of Upper St. Clair meant well when accused the Post-Gazette of shallow examination of the “marriage protection” amendment.  I am again overwhelmed by the lack of depth of the PG editorial board. Your editorial “Same Old, Same Old” (May 26) espouses the same old marginalization of the enormous societal debate on […]

Western Pennsylvania Humane Society fundraiser gone wrong

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

The Western Pennsylvania Humane Society conducted an “e” cyling event to recycle electronic goods.  They partnered with a company called EarthEcycle.  I was perplexed as to how ecycling could be a fundraiser given that most companies charge consumers to dispose of electronic goods.

Outrage the Movie to Open in Pittsburgh

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Today I received word that the movie Outrage will be showing at the Harris Theater, starting on June 19, 2009! From fearless documentary filmmaker Kirby Dick (This Film is Not Yet Rated) comes a searing indictment of the hypocrisy of closeted politicians who actively campaign against the lesbian and gay community to which they covertly […]

Prop 8 Upheld

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

You probably heard this.  The California Supreme Court upheld Prop 8, but also said that existing same sex marriages are valid. Tune in here for the latest responses from the LGBTQ community and leaders.  Here are photos from the protest.  Simply outrageous that voters can strip minority groups of their rights.  Have we learned nothing from history?  […]
