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, […]

Where Oh Where Have the Lesbians Gone? Where Or Where Could They Be?

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Fear not!  I was on vacation last week, but spent my time cleaning out my empty house and preparing for the arrival of Pittsburgh's newest lesbian, B.  I inhaled enough dust, cleaning fluid and spider webs to bring down the mightiest of women, but persevered in the knowledge that I could spend this week going […]

My Wish List for PrideFest Entertainment 2007

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

 Pittsburgh is fortunate to have a talented pool of queer and queer-friendly performance artists, some of whom I have met over the past year.  They include singer-songwriters, spoken word artists, comedians, poets, rappers, puppeteers, and so forth.  PrideFest is the annual community celebration of all things queer (or gay) and includes a chunk of stage […]

Beaver County Man – Society Sissified by Affirmative Action

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

What with all the weather and all, I missed this little gem of a letter in the Beaver County Times that was penned by Paul Kisiday of Freedom (ironic, no?).  Paul decries the sissification of contemporary society as exemplified by complaints over Super Bowl ads.  It seems that all the furor over distraught robots, homoerotic […]

Dear H's Mom, Congratulations on raising spunky, articulate and polite daughter.  As you know, she took the time to post a comment on this blog several months ago, sharing her thoughts on the Upper St. Clair performance of “The Importance of Being Earnest” and the potential for homophobia.  Unlike most of those who comment here, she […]

Coolest Gayesque Penguin Love Triangle Ever …

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

In what would be the coolest gayesque Pittsburgh love triangle ever, check out Pitt Girl's latest post … Did somebody start a Sidney and Mario gay rumor without me knowing it? Sonni and Sidney?  Or Sidney and Mario?  All I'm saying is that if Luke Ravenstahl ends up in handcuffs at the new hockey arena, […]

Mainstream Media vs the Burghosphere: Which White Men Should You Listen To?

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

By now, you've certainly caught this week's edition of the City Paper and noted the feature story on local blogs aka the Burghosphere — yes, dear readers, we have yinzerized the blogosphere.  The Burghosphere is young, hip, sassy and an “alternative” to the mainstream media (MSM).  Or so says all the white guys writing the […]

Tony Norman: Isaiah Washington “irrelevant” to reality of homophobia within African-American community

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

From today's Post-Gazette: Is it religion that fosters this willful ignorance and compulsion to deny basic civil rights to other oppressed minorities? Why is the black church so complicit in taking up the cudgel of discrimination when so many organists, choir leaders and assistant pastors are obviously gay? What accounts for this shameful lack of […]
