GLCC merger with Celebrate the Night: Where does this leave transwomen?

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

In the most recent GLCC newsletter, the organization announced that Celebrate the Night has become an official committee of the organization.  Celebrate the Night is a variety show that benefits the GLCC. As you may recall, CTN generated a firestorm last year by refusing to audition a transwoman and pronouncing that she was not woman […]

I was blacklisted by the City Paper

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

It is completely true.  My innocent little email was rejected by the Steel City Media cyber guardians.  I just wanted to ask Chris Potter a question.  Rest assured, Potter was on it once I made the call.  And once it became apparent that someone in marketing couldn't email her boyfriend … well, he was on […]

Blog For Choice 2008: Why It Is Important to Vote Pro-Choice

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

I am pro-choice.  Tuesday is the 35th Anniversary of the Roe v Wade decision and bloggers throughout the nation are working to raise the profile of reproductive choice vis a vis Blog for Choice 2008. My right to make decisions about my reproductive health is not something I take lightly.  While only three when Roe […]

so What’s Up with Sue, anyway?

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

i have hurt my back.  it started throbbing last week.  the two hour drive in the giant box truck to pick up toys didn't help, I'm sure.  especially the part where i was scrunched up from stress trying to find the marine distribution center.  then when i had to get all slidey with the boxes […]

Gifts and Questions for you ….

What should I include in a Pittsburgh themed gift basket for my brother and sister-in-law?  They live in Chicago.  I am about 85% finished with my holiday purchases and this is the stumper.  Also, is there a word, other than sister-in-law, for the woman married to your brother-in-law?  Especially when you are a lesbian and […]

Man threatens to shank dog and people think the police are the problem?

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

I love Pittsburgh.  Only here could a jackass like Kenneth King get sympathy for threatening to “shank” a dog.  King, a resident of the Mexican War Streets, walked past a canine unit at the Cedar Avenue Sunoco.  The K-9 dog, Benny, barked at him. From inside the car. Mr. King responded to the bark. The man screamed […]

How I made recycling just a little bit easier

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Again, nothing to do with the gay.  Still, I think it is interesting. I'm bringing in the PA Resources Council to give a presentation to my consumers and during our planning chats, I told them that I had several recycling questions which I was invited to submit.  More on that in another post somewhere down […]

Stuff I wonder about …

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Just some random questions I have … 1. Why can't you recycle caps from plastic bottles?  No one from the recycling world has been able to answer this question. 2.  Do thongs/shoes with a little thing between the big and second toe hurt all women's feet? While at the Waterfront this afternoon, I noticed that […]

Thursday Flashback – Just Because

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

  When I was in high school and college, I loved this show.  When I grew up and learned that Patty Duke was playing two roles while living with undiagnosed bipolar disorder, I loved the show even more.  I think I had a secret desire to go back to the “good old days” and actually […]

Video Monday: Sinead Lohan

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

This is Sinead Lohan.  I first heard her at Lilith Fair in 1999.  She was on a small stage and I stopped for a few moments. I have absolutely no idea what happened for the next 7-9 minutes.  She played “No Mermaid” and “Whatever It Takes.”  I just stood there transfixed.  Then I bought her […]
