Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

People. Shrieking and pulling apart Cynthia Nixon’s comments about bisexuality and gay is just tiresome. Relax.

From the use of Twitter during the recent uprisings throughout the Middle East to the Occupy movement, it is all abuzz.

I am Team Bilerico

OK, well that’s a bit of an overstatement.  Here’s my official bio. I like the aesthetic touch of my neighbors step ladder in the background. Very lesbian. Even if he is a straight white guy who does most of our odd jobs. Still … But I was pretty pleased when Bil Browning mentioned that I […]
