Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

While over one hundred city residents packed Council Chambers to discuss issues of domestic violence and the police, Luke went golfing.  Jeremy Boren at the Trib has the story: Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl played at a celebrity golf tournament rather than face more than 100 women angered by the promotions of three police officers linked […]

Santorum spokesfag goes to work for Fred Thompson

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Guess whose back in all his self-loathing glory?  Yes, that's right … Santorum's very own spokesfag, Robert Traynham. After licking his wounds with some of the soothing corporate money vis a vis his PR consulting work, Traynham has hitched his wagon to the potential Thompson campaign as a senior advisor. Now it seems he's changed course […]

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 […]

Speaking of the police …

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Here's something sad and pathetic about the abuse of police pwer … An officer who ordered two women to put on a “sex show” in a jail cell will be fired.  Norberto Cappas, 32, was found guilty by a police tribunal of conduct unbecoming an officer and lying during a departmental investigation and will lose […]

Correspondent Covers City Council Hearing.

I was busy today at the City Council hearing on the promotions of three police officers with domestic violence histories (or allegations).  I live blogged for the Pittsburgh Women's Blogging Society.  You can start here and scroll back through nine posts. While local LGBT activist Billy Hileman showed up to testify, I was somewhat stunned […]

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) […]

Touching Base on International Gay Issues

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

I haven't been feeling especially bloggy lately, which usually means I scour the Internet for interesting gay tidbits that don't require a lot of commentary.  This is today's version … Russian Christians have attempted to purge the Moscow River in the wake of a gay cruise that sailed those very waters.  [O]ne of the action's […]

Gay Stuff To Read About

The Newark city school district redacted this photo from the high school yearbook after labeling it “illicit” even though the book featured multiple heterosexual kissing couples.  So the district blacked it out. After a brouhaha erupted, the school district offered to provide an “unredacted” version to anyone who wanted it.   Huh. Elizabeth Edwards supports gay […]

A Treasure Trove of Family History

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Today, I carted some boxes from my Grandma's to Lesbian Central so I can scan the photos and organize the lot of materials.  She's fine, but I want to try and get her to identify some of the people in the snapshots before it is too late.  Ledcat and I spent the afternoon cleaning our […]
