State Rep. Dan Frankel – A Homo's Best Friend

Pennsylvania State Representative Dan Frankel (D- Allegheny) released a statement on the proposed state constitutional amendment.  Frankel is a long time LGBT ally and, unlike several of his colleagues, recognizes that there are greater threats to Pennsylvania's families than homosexuals.  Things like the economy, property tax reform, education, healthy care and so forth. You tell […]

Homophobes in High School – Teachers?

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

A group of teachers in San Leandro High School (California) are refusing to display posters promoting gay diversity.  The posters were designed by the school's  Gay-Straight Alliance and show a rainbow flag and bear the words “This is a safe place to be who you are.”  The “educators” are hiding behind the illusion that the […]

PA Legislators Hate Gays and Have the Amendment to Prove It

Does this look even remotely like YOUR family?  Today, Pennsylvania legislators unveiled their plan to destroy the families of 20,000 gay and 250,000 heterosexual families.  The heterosexual families, unmarried per the 2000 Census, are the innocent victims in the homo-haters all out war on Pennsylvania's gay families. Rep Scott W. Boyd, R-Lancaster County and Daryl Metcalfe, […]

Cleveland LGBT Center Reached Out to Homeless LGBT Youth

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

From 365gay.com, Cleveland's LGBT Community Center is partnering with Cuyahoga County to determine how many homeless LGBT youth there are between the ages of 14 and 24.  The study is the first major look at gay homelessness in more than a decade, when one study suggested that almost a third of the homeless in big […]

Steelers and Lesbians

In my family, I am a freak.  Not for the obvious reason.  No, the fact that my girlfriend loves football almost compensates for the whole homo thing.  Because I don't really watch it.  I tune in once in awhile.  I know the tune to “Here we go” and I have vivid memories of lunchroom pep […]

Homo-Good News

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

The other night some of my homo-friends were griping that the only “news” on LGBT issues is bad news … discrimination, hatred, conversions, proof that Melissa Hart is gay, etc, etc, etc.  So for all my “glass is half empty” readers …. here is some good news.  Note:  the good is one small nugget in a very […]

Pgh and Gay Movies

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Brokeback Mountain came to town two weeks ago and opened in two (2) theatres — Loews at the Waterfront and The Manor in Squirrel Hill.  That's it. Fast forward and there are homo curious moviegoeers lined up all over this town.  It is playing in NINE theaters.  Hmmm …. Another point of interest … I […]

Correspondent Screw Up

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Last night I accidentally deleted one of my entries.  An entry I thought was witty and insightful.  Something that might entertain the random people who visit this site.  As I watched my words vanish forever from this earth, a curtain of despair enclosed me.  I turned off the PC and went downstairs to sulk in […]

Trib Columnist Condemns Anti-Gay Marriage Amendment

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

I missed this last week.  The Trib's Dimitri Vassilaros opined against the PA legislative attempt to constitutionalize hate and discrimination.   Whenever a judge or legislative body in a state say that homosexuals have the same marriage rights as heterosexuals, it promotes more marriage. Denying gays and lesbians that right is anything but protecting marriage — it's […]
