Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

I got nothing.  You can vote Team Democrat and hope for the best.  Or you can vote for the best commercial.  Or the candidates least likely to have to defend themselves from being labeled a witch.  I tried to write a thoughtful analysis, but the only person I have any respect for is Joe Sestak.  […]

First, the banal …

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

I've been off the radar for over a week.  I needed to recharge and rethink some of the ridiculous aspects of, well, everything.  I've half-heartedly paid attention to the polls, but it was just last week I changed my screen-saved from “Elect Joe Hoeffel” to be honest with you.  Hardly a rousing endorsement. I also […]

LGBTQ folks rally to reelect Congressman Patrick Murphy – PA

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Congressman Murphy is possibly the only candidate in the entire nation that has the backing of the entire gay community, from Beltway insiders to jailed activists. He's been on the frontlines about repealing DADT and makes no apologies.  If you've been paying attention to LGBT politics, you're most likely aware that the rift between Gay, […]

Spirit Day 10-20-2010

It does get better. You approach your 40th birthday and embrace the gifts of maturity.  My partner and I are living the life, so to speak.  We have good jobs where we can be ourselves for the most part.  We have built a home together filled with a lot of real moments, including moments that have […]

PA Senate Race – a dead heat?

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Step back, naysayers.  It appears we have a race.  According to poll data released today, Sestak LEADS the race, 46-45.  You can put Pennsylvania Senate back in the toss up category. Joe Sestak leads Pat Toomey 46-45 in our newest poll of the race, erasing the 9 point deficit he had in an August PPP […]

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

National Coming Out Day

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

It is October 11, 2010. How are you acknowledging or honoring this event? I'm going to come out to someone.  Not sure whom that will be.  Social media won't count. Stay tuned …

Trib Letter to the Editor

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

It has been awhile.  Thankfully, Kris Saunders of Squirrel Hill has brought back the homobigot rant to the editorial page of the Tribune Review.  Kris is of the mindset that the pedophilia scandal in the Catholic Church is a result of rampant tolerance of homosexuality. But it is odd that the Trib, which has called […]

Star Struck?

This morning, Ledcat and I toddled down to Millvale to try out their incarnation of Pamela's Diner.  I expected to be thrilled and amazed by yummy strawberry pancakes, but turns out it took a chair to slay me. Michelle Obama's chair. Well, she doesn't *own* the chair.  She sat in it. When she stopped by […]
