There’s a new slur in town …

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

From the PG's Morning File comes word <ahem> that the American Dialect Society has deemed the phrase “toe tapper” as a synonym for homosexual the most outrageous word usage of 2007. Cool.  Toe tapping, you might recall, references Larry Craig.  Chalk up another notch on the giant belt of American homophobia.  Larry Craig isn't even […]

Pittsburgh Dish on Angry Leathermen

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Members of Pittsburgh's Leather community aren't pleased to be stereotyped and the Pittsburgh Dish has the scoop (courtesy of Pittsburgh's OUT). All chuckles aside, the complaintant – one Colin Morgan – seems to be upset that individuals in the leather community are civic-minded individuals, not just solely focused on sex.  There's tolerance for ya.  I've […]

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Men who donate sperm to women who promise they won't have to pay child support don't have to worry about the women renegging in part due to today's 3-2 decision by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court (365gay). The 3-2 decision overturns lower court rulings under which Joel L. McKiernan had been paying up to $1,500 a […]

Happy New Year. Last night, we participated in the festivities on Penn Avenue at the First Night Celebration.  We had a really wonderful time:  dinner at Six Penn, an entertaining stroll up and down Penn and Liberty, two delightful comedy shows and the company of my best girl, Ledcat.  The Amish Monkeys were very cute, […]

Upcoming LGBT Town Hall Meeting

My buddy Jeff Freedman, chair of the Pittsburgh PrideFest Committee gave me the heads up on an upcoming “town hall” meeting to get community input on impending changes in PrideFest.  To summarize, the GLCC has produced PrideFest for the past 5 years or so after it was nearly bankrupted by previous producers.  <I always like […]

Pope Benedict: Homosexuality is a roadblock to world peace

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

From the PG's Forum section comes this reflection on the pontifical peace perspective.  On World Peace Day, Jan. 1, most of the world's citizens will be too poor, too hungry, too surrounded by violence or too worried by this century's other basic challenges to pay attention. Those who do pay attention likely will think first […]

What’s up with the Goodwill Building?

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

While I was blogging about the Hot Metal Faith Community, something from the Post-Gazette article caught my eye.  After communion, as they held candles and sang “Silent Night,” tears streamed down many faces among 450 people at the last worship service that Hot Metal Bridge Faith Community will hold in the South Side's Goodwill cafeteria.
