I’m dressing my dog up as a pea and I don’t care what you think

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Last night, I was shivering as I trudged alongside Ledcat back to our car.  We had spent a fun evening rabble rousing and cavorting with the GLENDA folks' “Dining for Diversity” event.  We attended a dinner party in Highland Park with great food and a lovely opportunity to catch up with some friends.  Then we […]

Gay Straight Alliances have positive impact on schools; Pittsburgh 92.9 not so much …

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

A GLSEN study on the impact of student Gay Straight Alliances found that schools are generally less tolerant of homophobia, while LGBTQ students are less likely to hear gay slurs, more likely to perform well academically and feel safer in the classroom.  Wow, a supportive environment makes a difference for the well-being and academic progress […]

Condi Rice Shares House and Line of Credit a/another Woman — Does it matter?

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Yesterday, I received 8 kajillion email messages informing me that public documents reveal that Secretary of State Rice has been co-owner of a house with documentary maker, Randy Bean (Rice and Bean — imagine the hay McIntire will make with that one?).  Does this mean she's a lesbian? Maybe, maybe not — but it does […]

End War Fast and Arrest

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

As expected, the CP covers the ongoing End War Fast targeting the military recruitment center in Oakland.  As you can imagine, the police are being less than cooperative and, apparently the protestors are depriving Oaklanders of greasy fast food, photocopies and overpriced bandaids.  Darn them!  Imagine the exercise of civil rights getting in the way of commerce […]

Dessert, Bingo, and the Zoo — A Gay Bonanza in Pittsburgh (plus other stuff)

First, some upcoming queer things to do in Pittsburgh … OUTrageous Bingo is this Saturday, September 15 at Goodwill's building on the Southside.  This is a good time and benefits two local causes — the GLCC and Shepherd Wellness Center.  “Dining for Diversity” also takes place Saturday evening from 9 – 11:30 @ SPACE downtown.  […]

Gay sex havens, ginormous strollers and Larry Craig

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Bradley S. Gelder of Point Breeze is not a fan of police officers staking out public restrooms noted as gay sex havens.  Even more disturbing and surprising than the continuing homophobic right-wing hypocrisy exemplified by the Sen. Larry Craig story (“Idaho Senator Stepping Aside,” Sept. 2) is that police departments continue to waste their time […]

Mike Rogers – Outing Hypocrites One Blog Post at a Time

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

I like Mike Rogers, the author of BlogActive.com.  Rogers uses his powers for good, outing hypocritical legislators who hide in their pathetic closets while publicly voting against gay rights.  From a profile in the Washington Post: For three years now, he's been a feared one-man machine, “outing,” he says, nearly three dozen senior political and […]

“Take your tolerance and shove it.” — wingnuts shower the love on Jerry Lewis

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Good grief!  I've been blogging for about 20 months during which I've tackled everything from Rick Santorum's former spokesfag to annoying Republican ice cream twins.  I've mocked the homophobic Ravenstahl administration.  I've targeted Joey Porter, the Archbishop of Nigeria, the City Paper, Edgar Snyder, a lesbian variety show, Pride in the Streets and most major […]

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 […]
