Cyd Zeigler at OUTSports explores the lack of public statement from Steelers Coach Mike Tomlin on LGBTQ issues. Tomlin is a member of anti-LGBTQ Allegheny Alliance Center Church on the Northside.

From Nature International Journal of Science, Kale Edmiston, a postdoc at the University of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania, uses neuroimaging to study mood and anxiety disorders. He describes how living as an openly transgender researcher has inspired his outreach endeavours.
