Book of Daniel "Cures" a Gay

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Last night episode of the Book of Daniel should appease all the homo-hating fears of the right wingers.  Not one but both gay characters lived down to stereotype and experimented with heterosexual sex.  The self-described “lesbian” sister in law got all hot and bothered by one of the male mafia construction workers, but in all […]

Vatican Investigates Sexual Climate at Local Seminaries

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

From yesterday's Post-Gazette, I discover  that the Vatican has sent teams to determine if American seminaries are providing “proper spiritual, moral and theological training for the priesthood.” This includes visits to St. Vincent Seminary in Latrobe, SS. Cyril & Methodius Byzantine Catholic Seminary on the North Side  and St. Paul Seminary in East Carnegie. Only one […]

Rhode Island Gays Hit With Federal Tax Penalties

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Well, you knew it wouldn't be too long before the clash between state and federal acknowledgement (or lack thereof) of same sex partnerships would create turmoil.  Rhode Island has just sent notices to domestic partners of state employees informing them that the health and insurance benefits they received are federally taxable income.  And the state […]

That confirms my unofficial report from Dustin, the Loews' waiter who took care of our […]

Here's what the incomparable Felicity Huffman said during her acceptance of the Best Actress award for her performance as Bree in […]

Microsoft Target of Homo Hater Boycott

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

The homohating bigots are at it again, calling for a boycott on Microsoft and other companies supporting a LGBT civil rights bill in the Washington state legislature.  What can you say to this kind of overt hatred?  Again, I cannot get my mind around the fact that these bigots and their sheep actually BELIEVE that […]

PA Legislators Deem Gay Marriage Bigger Threat than Economy, Health Care or Terrorism

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

This ain't funny, folks.  The PA legislature, home of the midnight pay raise, has made protecting marriage from the homos a focus right now.  Never mind that our fair city of Pittsburgh is crumbling around us while our beloved mayor plugs holes with political hacks.  Never mind that GM is closing a plant and putting […]
