Those personal moments of discrimination

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Just when I think I'm pretty accepted in mainstream society, I get a humbling reminder of my second class citizenship. I can't be very specific, but I was asked to hide my identity as a lesbian in a certain situation.  That never feels good.  I told you when my sister-in-law asked me to take down […]

Ohio Lesbian Wants to Return to West Point as Openly Gay Woman

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

The PG has the story. We are all waiting for the Defense Department report on Tuesday regarding the repeal of DADT.  Recent court decisions and increasing pressure from the LGBT community that President Obama keep his promise to repeal have spurred our legislators to repeal under their own terms, instead of judicial terms.  Good?  Bad?  […]

World AIDS Day in Pittsburgh

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Complacency about HIV and AIDS will prove deadly. Wednesday December 1 is World AIDS Day and Pittsburgh groups are banding together to ensure the region does not take a sigh of relief on this issue.  People are still dying.  People are living with medical advancements, but face barriers to the lives we take for granted. […]

A Lesbian Thanksgiving

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Our Thanksgiving is pretty nice. We all have small families so we all gather together (my parents, Ledcat's mother, her brother and his family, our sister-in-law's mother) wherever dinner might be.  This year, we headed north to Mercer County. There's no real huge lesbian element to the holiday.  We've been together for 7 years so no […]

Comments

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

I'm going back to anonymous comments because it is a bit cumbersome to register and post a comment.  Let's try to act with some maturity.  You can still use your real name.  There are two or three people who post repeatedly and it is obvious who they are.  Don't ruin it for everyone.  Say what […]

Being “Other”

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

It really sucks when someone bluntly tells you that you aren't part of the group.  I had this happen yesterday when someone didn't like a piece I wrote and told me that I was not part of their group because I didn't participate enough, nothing personal.  Ha. That person clearly doesn't read my blog, because […]

i am willing to sell out

Bram was sharing his Sonoma Grill adventures (restaurant review in return for a gift card to raffle off to readers). It occurs to me that I am really ripe for some opportunities to burst the illusion of noble blogger.  Beyond lesbianism, I've lost nearly 50 pounds in 8 months. Think of all the opportunities … Dicks  – […]

Personal catch up

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Just had coffee with Bram from The Pittsburgh Comet.  It was nice to stretch blogging and political muscles that have been a little cramped lately.  So, the diet and exercise regimen continues.  I am closing in on the 50 lb mark which is pretty awesome.  That is not my final goal, but I certainly intend […]

This n That

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

The PG has a good piece on the spread of poverty into the suburbs.  In the Pittsburgh area, more than three-quarters of the poor population now live in the suburbs. In the decade since the turn of the century, “The number of poor in the suburbs has grown by more than twice the rate than […]
