A Lesbian Weekend in Pgh: Edgar Snyder, Yuppies and Decapitated Jesus

UPDATE:  Upon the advice of my counsel, I have deleted references to minors that may or may not be affiliated with Mr. Edgar Snyder as well as comments about the parenting skills of adults that may or may not be the parents of said minors.  My apologies for assuming that the behavior of children (older […]

Me and McIntire talk about the Dyke March this afternoon

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Yo yo yo … maclesbians.  OK, that worked so much better in my head.  🙂 Never one to let Jim and Randy beat him on a salacious topic, John has asked me to do a segment on the upcoming 2nd Annual Dyke March today at 2:25 on 93.7, The Zone.  They may have broken the […]

Riveting Rosies Rock

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

UPDATE:  See You Tube link at the end … ****************************************************** Here's one suggestion for a perfect summer evening:  spend a few balmy hours out on the patio of a local coffeehouse in the company of friends (and your lover) while you listen to some of Pittsburgh's talented chica singer-songwriters, collectively known as the Riveting Rosies. […]

Non-Live Blogging: Luke really knows how to throw a party

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

This afternoon, I thought it might be interesting to live blog an event that the Mayor actually attends. Something critical and groundbreaking, perhaps even newsworthy.  Like, say perhaps, a “garden” party to celebrate his single-handed reclamation of a porn palace for the good citizens of Pittsburgh.  <insert applause> So off we toddled to West Park […]

City Paper on PrideFest or not

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

The CP sent Jared Trent Stonesifer to cover Pride.  In this article, he discussed the evening block party (Pride in the Streets), the Awareness March, the Pride Theatrer Festival and the Warhol exhibit on queer black life in the 30's and 40's.  Notice anything missing? Yep, he forgot to cover the actual festival (PrideFest).  The […]

We’re headed for PrideFest this weekend (and FLUX, too)

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

PrideFest.  Our annual celebration of our community pride.  Saturday, June 16, 2007.  Riverfront Park on the North Shore.  The march kicks off at 12 PM.  The festival itself begins at 1 PM.  We like to watch the march at the beginning (5th and Ross) and then hop in the car to drive down to the North […]

Purse Totin’ Tinky Winky Gay – Again?

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Oh those wacky Polish children's rights watchers …. always a day behind and a dollar short.  Remeber back in 1999 when Jerry Falwell deemed Teletubbie Tinky Winky a homo because he carried a purse (TW is the purple one)?  Now Ewa Sowinski is on the same bandwagon.  Well, she way until apparently someone reminder her […]

Gay man with local roots named associate helm of Three Rivers Arts Festival

From today's Post-Gazette, I learned that the Three Rivers Arts Festival has recruited a talented young gay man as the associated director.  His name is Chris Taylor, he's from Penn Hills and he describes himself as “single and looking for a domestic partner.”  Love that. Taylor recently earned an M.A. in administration and policy from […]

Kennywood De-Gays Pirate Show, Pleads For Homos to Stop Calling

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Queers 1, Kennywood 0.  As we reported last week, Kennywood, the bastion of local family fun, was producing a pirate themed show that featured homophobic content … lispy voice, gay kissing panic, you know the drill.  In response to a complaint, Kennywood General Manager Jerome Gibis said he didn't find the content offensive and wasn't going […]

The Trib on Pittsburgh Lesbian Scene – Huh?

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

OK, this just strikes me as weird.  The Tribune-Review sent a reporter to OUTrageous Bingo to do a story on the lack of a lesbian scene in Pittsburgh.  “Lesbian scene” should always be read as “no lesbians bars,” but we'll get to that in a moment. OUTrageous Bingo is a mixed event – gay men, […]
