I'm not aware of Ms. Berner's position on LGBT issues but I'm going to find out.  Her opponent in the primary, Jason Altmire, is prolife which of course opens the door to the concept of a right to privacy inherent in many LGBT […]

The Boondocks on Gay Marriage

  I am a regular read of The Boondocks strip in the PG, but I must confess that I am often confounded.  I get the feeling that I'm definitely not “in” on the real humorous element and/or the real spin on the issue.  But I suppose that is how any white middle class lesbian would […]

How Many Costas are there?

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Can ANYONE tell me exactly how many Costas roam these hills?  Every time I turn around, I see reference to yet another Costa kin either holding some obscure office or being appointed to something.  Guy Costa should just be hired by KDKA since he gets almost as much airtime as pretty boy Jeff Verszyla.  Given […]
