Brighton Heights The Vault Rocks a Saturday Afternoon

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

I had a perfect glass of iced tea this weekend.  Ledcat and I toodled up California Avenue to Brighton Heights in order to pick up a very generous donation the Vault had made to support a fair housing project.  Being generous in return (and hungry), we stopped for a snack.  Laura had a bottled raspberry […]

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 […]

Lesbians love Harry Potter (no spoilers)

So I learned something new about my friend Sarah last week.  She's a Harry Potter fanatic. She came over to help me pick up my 75 lb dog crates — each btw — from the Federal Express office on Neville Island.  Because she has a truck.  And she's very cool and helpful n'at.  So after unloading […]

Video Monday: Taste Some Queer Music

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Saturday night, I picked up the music issue of Curve.  Most of the featured artists were completely new to me, even Ledcat only knew a handful.  So off to You Tube … Check these two aht … Toshi Reagon isn't new to the music scene (Ledcat even had actual cassette tapes!).  Here's something really groovy. […]

Catching up on a few random LGBT things

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

My favorite Christian-flavored homobigot, Diane Gramley of the PA American Family Association, had a little missive published last week in the North section of the Post-Gazette.  This time she rallies to the defense of the poor Boy Scouts being persecuted for their own homobigotry.  I'd post a quote but it is really rather a rambly […]

Yo yo yo … maclesbians.  OK, that worked so much better in my head.  🙂 Never one to let Jim and Randy beat him on a salacious topic, John has asked me to do a segment on the upcoming 2nd Annual Dyke March today at 2:25 on 93.7, The Zone.  They may have broken the […]

Video of the Week: Dance With Me

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

This is one of my favorite songs.  I am a total cheesy 1970's song addict, which is funny because I grew up with an irrational fear of 1970's cheesy clothing.  Terrified.  But this song rocks. Well, it actually is more of a groove than a rock,but you see where I am going with this.  I am […]

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 […]
