Dani Janae Profiles Yours Truly For GLAAD

GLAAD asked me whom I would like to write a profile of me for their blog. Without hesitation, I said “Dani Janae” … the very week she was moving away from Pittsburgh! She crafted this article: Pittsburgh Lesbian Correspondents’ Sue Kerr is Paying Tribute to LGBTQ Individuals who Lost Their Lives to Violence What I […]

Pittsburgh LGBTQIA+ Commission Editorial in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

In honor of Pride Month, the City of Pittsburgh LGBTQIA+ Commission crafted an editorial that was published in today’s Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Today is June 28, 2022. The first day of the Stonewall Uprising began on June 28, 1969. I am sharing the entire piece here which is something I would not normally do. But the […]

My Love Letter Lost to Bitch Media

At age 51, I cannot remember a time when Bitch Media (originally the magazine, then the website, too) was not part of my day to day life. I also cannot remember how I was introduced to Bitch. It was just there in my adult consciousness. Now it will no longer be here. Bitch Media is […]

PublicSource is launching a new gender and identity newsletter

Lots of news from PublicSource –  As PublicSource celebrates its 10th anniversary, the organization announces the promotion of Halle Stockton to the role of editor-in-chief. Stockton has named Rich Lord as managing editor.

Holding candidates accountable

Someone asked me privately recently about my choice to publicly list candidates I’ve approached to complete my Campaign Q&A series, specifically identifying those who have not responded to my request at all.

MSNBC Covers Murder of Trans Women

I was so pleased with this segment – that Jonathan Capehart scheduled it and with the points Raquel Willis brought up, especially firmly connecting the dots between the anti-LGBTQ legislation (“Don’t Say Gay”, criminalizing transition, etc) and the epidemic of violent terror systemically murdering trans, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming neighbors – especially Black trans women […]

What This White Woman Thinks About Will Smith Slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars

What do White People Think about the Oscars

None of your business. It is not my place to inject my opinion into this conversation. That is something my Black friends, especially my Black women friends, requested and so I comply out of respect for them. Yes, my headline is sort of clickbait because I really want you to watch these video clips. I […]

Why did the City Paper think we are collecting cards FOR cats instead of the cat caretakers?

So the Pittsburgh City Paper thought the #santaclawspgh project was about gift cards for cats, not cat caregivers. I was interviewed. I spent time crafting responses on a weekend night b/c of the deadline. Then they pulled the story because they said it is not “upbeat” enough about helping animals. I only found out about […]

Why Does Beaver County Have No Regard for Trans Lives? Or Why Krisinda Bright Does Not Deserve to Die

Transgender Murder

Krisinda Bright did a terrible thing when she murdered her two young adult children, both of whom were trans BIPOC. No one denies that, not even her. Killing your own children is the worst conceivable crime. But no one has shown that she herself deserves to die (now off the table thanks to a plea […]
