We used a gift card to dine at what’s billed as an “upscale Italian restaurant”  – setting aside that’s its just “meh” – there’s this by the front door: I didn’t really enjoy this restaurant (never have) but this was the straw that broke this camel’s back. I’m paying upwards of $4 to get a […]

Hillary Has Me Thinking …

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

I have not been a good patient. I’ve been sleeping like an infant, but having too much screen time. Cranky, irritable, still making very odd statements and inappropriate comments (not in a good way) and not myself. At all. I am struggling to figure out the simplest task on my iPod. I can’t even change […]

Welcome To Our New Blogger – Jennifer Tyrrell

We are pleased to welcome our new guest blogger to Pittsburgh Lesbian Correspondents – Jennifer Tyrrell. As you may recall, Jennifer is an Ohio based lesbian who skyrocketed to national attention when she challenged the Boy Scouts of America about their homophobia.

Rebel Who Found Her Cause

When thinking about what to write for this blog, I was faced with a decision. Do I really want people to know the “real” me?? I so often use humor and sarcasm to keep people at a “safe distance”, emotionally speaking. Do I really wanna let people “in” or should I just amuse them with […]

Happy Anniversary!

Seven years ago, I decided to explore this “blogging” thing … it seemed like a good passing fancy …

Smack Me …

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

A week ago, I smacked my head on the headboard and not in a good (or intentional) way … I was struggling to get comfortable b/c of an unrelated back injury (pulled a muscle – stellar week, eh?) and BAM! I didn’t pass out, but I made several mistakes. First, I went to sleep. I […]

This Discrimination is Legal in 70%+ of Pennsylvania

A trolley operator in Annapolis has opted to discontinue his wedding service rather than provide serve to same sex couples. The owner of Discover Annapolis Tours said he decided to walk away from $50,000 in annual revenue instead of compromising his Christian convictions when same-sex marriages become legal in Maryland in less than a week. And […]

My Letter To Santa

Dear Santa, Well, it has been awhile since I wrote a letter to you – 35 years? How is everyone? I have to admit that Rankin and Bass have confused me as to who actually lives at the North Pole (Mrs. Claus changes her hairstyle quite a bit, depending on the holiday special.) I really […]

Put Your Money Where Your Meme Is: Support Dick’s Sporting Goods and Local Youth

Imagine if each person who has posted something about gun control in the past 6 days were to make one purchase – large or small – from Dick’s Sporting Goods? As you may know, Dick’s has suspended the sale of certain semiautomatic weapons in all of its stores and pulled all guns from the store […]

Get a Grip: Week Six – Sigh

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

I’ve spent the last six weeks using a wrist splint to manage some sort of wrist/tendon issue.  It has been quite an experience. Last week, I had a follow up visit with my PCP who basically countermanded all of the information his own urgent care colleauge had provided me during my initial visit. Sigh. So […]
