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 […]

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Here's something interesting from – Britain's most gay-friendly workplace is a POLICE department. (London)  Less than a decade ago Staffordshire police were rated the most homophobic force in the country after going on a clandestine operation to arrest gays suspected of having public sex.

Small changes in this hard world

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Sometimes, the best part of a mystery novel is a few pages after the crime is solved. Last weekend, I picked up Sara Paretsky's latest at the library.  I was looking forward to visiting with my old friend V I Warshawski over the weekend while I recuperated from the vetiges of the flu.  That it was […]

Are lesbians allowed in the North Hills?

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Who the heck waits 45 minutes on a Wednesday night to eat at Olive Garden?  in Pittsburgh!   Needing a meal while doing errands on McNightmare Road last Weds night, we grudgingly decided that cookie-cutter Italian food was the best option among the chain restaurants.  I should have known something was amiss when I encountered a […]

Lesbian Take on Brokeback Mountain

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

I hope you do go see this soon.  I am a total loss for words to describe howwonderful this movie is.  The cinematography is stellar, but so is thestoryline and the acting.  Heath Ledger blew me away, definitely an Oscarworthy performance.  Michelle Williams (played his wife) was also stunninglygood for a former Dawson's Creek star. […]

Nashville's NBC Affiliate Succumbs to HomoHaters over Book of Daniel

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

From, I discover that yet another Bible Belt NBC affiliate has capitulated to the right-wing hate regarding homosexuality and cancelled the Book of Daniel.  According to WSMV mangement, they received over 137 complaints via telephone, email and postal mail.  And apparently the independent nature of the 137 responses caught their attention “Over the years, […]

Hens-Greco named Campaign Field Director for Berner

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Sam Hens-Greco named Campaign Field Director for Democratic Congressional Candidate Georgia Berner. 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 […]
