Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Update:  The meeting has been relocated to the Crazy Mocha on Butler Street in Lawrenceville. I've confimed with the President of Steel City Stonewall, Dana Elmendorf.  Tough call between the Film Society's “Pedro” and this meeting.  Either way, you are doing good.  My understanding is that the upcoming Board meeting of the Steel City Stonewall […]

Obama's administration plans to offer domestic partner benefits to federal employees, minus health insurance and retirement which will require legislative action.  More here.
