We predict city Solicitor will take fall for Ravenstahl

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Our prediction on the McNeilly/Regan situation – Acting city Solicitor George Specter will resign or retire, Ravenstahl will continue to blame the O'Connor administration and the city will settle with McNeilly prompting her to retire immediately afterwards. The Ravenstahl puppetmasterers will easily sacrifice one lawyer to keep their golden Pinnochio bright, shiny and electable. Our […]

According to an online edition of Michigan's LGBTQ newsletter, a group of 300+ straight and gay women wore lavender shirts to the recent University of Michigan/Penn State women's basketball game.

Post-Gazette Looks at “Gay-Friendliness” of Pittsburgh without talking to the gays!

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Usually, I enjoy MacKenzie Carpenter's articles … sort of like curling up in your bathrobe with a warm cup of coffee and the tattered copy of “Pride and Prejudice” or “The Brothers Karamazov.”  Sure the predictability is there, but you never tire of the artistry, the divine spark that generated such a wonderful read. So […]

The woman who loves to hate us dykes and faggots is at it again.  Diane Gramley, the high priestess of Pennsylvania family values, has snagged herself a story in the Beaver County Times outlining her “concerns” about recent outreach from the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) to the Ambridge Area School District. The […]

Lesbians on the Prowl for John McIntire

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Per today's post at his Macyapper blog, it appears John is back in town and rarin' to go.  Word on the street — okay, in yesterday's Post-Gazette which is practically the same thing minus the labor tension and stale donuts — is that John may soon pop up on a local FM talk station.  Namely, […]

That’s Commander Catherine McNeilly to you, Mayor Ravenstahl

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Ohhhh … in a nice courtroom twist, a federal judge granted a preliminary injunction to Commander McNeilly reinstating her to the rank of Commander.  You'll recall all the glorious details when Commander McNeilly blew the whistle on the nefarious goings on of Dennis Regan the political hack driver who would be Public Safety Director.  Thanks […]

Councilwoman Darlene Harris’ Credibility Goes Up In Smoke

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

In another stunning effort to spin negative publicity, City Councilwoman Darlene Harris claims that she did not order a smoke eater machine to de-stuffify her office.  Ms. Harris simply wanted some box fans and now she is outraged, outraged I tell you, that someone mistakenly spent $1200 on the smoke eater. “I wanted a little […]
