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 […]

Photo Exhibit Focuses on Queer Black Life in Pgh

Not a very exciting headline, I admit.  I'm a little tired this morning, but I've been meaning to blog about this exhibit for a few days so I need to get down to it. Teenie Harris.  You may have heard of him — photographer, documentarian of life in the Hill District for nearly 30 years […]

Pgh Lesbian Variety Show Faces Accusations of Discrimination and Bias

For several years, Celebrate the Night has honored National Coming Out Day with a women's variety show featuring a slew of talented local, amateur performers.  Each year, the call goes out across the community to women of talent — singers, jugglers, musicians, poets, dancers, comedians and so forth.  The unifying element is that performers are […]

Priory Fine Pastries: Cupcakes = Good, Lack of Napkins = Not so good

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Ok, this is really bugging me so I have to post to get off my chest. As a Northsider, I am a frequent flier at the best little bakeshop over here, Priory Fine Pastries on East Ohio Street.  I stop in to pick up bread, muffins for weekends breakfasts and the occasional pie/cake for a […]

Class Reunion

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Yesterday, it finally arrived.  It being a very preliminary announcement of my 20th class reunion in the summer of 2008.  I have been out of high school nearly 20 years.  Wow. To be honest, my recollection of high school is somewhat hazy.  Sometimes I'll think of a person from my past and not remember if […]

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 […]

Lesbians Dirtier Than Political Junkies, Comets, and Carbolic Smoke Balls — Rivaled only by MacYapper

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Gay is a bad word.  This I discovered after Maria pointed out that her blog was rated R for adult content.  So I just had to see where the lesbians ranked.  And guess what?   This rating was determined based on the presence of the following words: gay (24x) lesbian (12x) queer (2x) bomb (1x) […]

MySpace update

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Well, it has been three days since I posted about MySpace and I've collected 14 friends and two comments.  Being true to my word, I rejected the one person who I have never met.  I'm not sure why she wanted to be my friend, but she handled the rejection very well. I also rejected someone […]

Reversal of Course on MySpace …

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

OK, I have caved and set up a myspace profile.  I know, I know … it was almost a year ago that I blogged about it being strictly for young people and “creepy” for those of us over 30.  I believe I wrote this: And then there is this “friends” thing.  Apparently, you connect your […]
