Miss Mona holds her own and other stuff of note from Lesbian Central

It has been a roller coaster around Lesbian Central.  Overall, things are good, but Ledcat and I are exhausted (and it is only Monday). As you may recall, Miss Mona began her chemo treatments last week.  She has done remarkably well with only a few minor side effects making an appearance.  Today, she stood in […]

Gay man with local roots named associate helm of Three Rivers Arts Festival

From today's Post-Gazette, I learned that the Three Rivers Arts Festival has recruited a talented young gay man as the associated director.  His name is Chris Taylor, he's from Penn Hills and he describes himself as “single and looking for a domestic partner.”  Love that. Taylor recently earned an M.A. in administration and policy from […]

John Edwards Answers “Gay Issues” Questionnaire from the HRC

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Courtesy of Pam's House Blend I think these answers are consistent with what we've heard so far from John Edwards, along with an clear statement that he supports the repeal of DOMA, which is what stands in the way of marriage equality on paper. Every single candidate who is in favor of civil unions cannot […]

PG Reader: Don’t Impose Christo Morality Code on Others

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

I love letters to the editor, almost as much as I enjoy the comics.  I truly admire folks who take the time to pen a letter, even when I do not admire their perspective or beliefs.  From the perspective of a lesbian blogger, it is valuable for intolerant people to put their prejudice, bigotry and […]


Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Two big McIntire lesbian items of note … First, I'll be around 2:20 this afternoon to chat about Mary Cheney and Heather Poe's baby son.  Second, I got a nice shout out as a “sometimes political” blogger who confirmed Bruce Kraus' gayness.  If you want to know who else is gay, but not open about it […]

PG Reader – Jesus Isn’t Running a Buffet!

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Matt Huffmyer of Westview has had it with pick and choose Christians who toss out all the good Old Testament stuff b/c Jesus didn't talk about it.  Stuff like homosexuality and porn.  Jesus said that He came to fulfill the law and the prophets. They clearly state that any type of sexuality outside of the […]

Official Lesbian Pet Delegate, Miss Mona, Begins Treatment for Cancer

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Tis a day of mixed emotions here at Lesbian Central.  Our dear Miss Mona, age 11, has been diagnosed with early stage lymphoma.  She begins chemotherapy tomorrow morning.  She has to go once every 3 weeks for 5 treatments.  Poor Miss Mona has lost some weight and a bit of her sassy energy, but otherwise […]

Kennywood De-Gays Pirate Show, Pleads For Homos to Stop Calling

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Queers 1, Kennywood 0.  As we reported last week, Kennywood, the bastion of local family fun, was producing a pirate themed show that featured homophobic content … lispy voice, gay kissing panic, you know the drill.  In response to a complaint, Kennywood General Manager Jerome Gibis said he didn't find the content offensive and wasn't going […]

Sunday Round Up’ – Politics, Nudie Lesbians and the Loss of A Community Icon

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

The Post-Gazette reports that local gay business owner and community advocate, Jay Bernard, has passed away.  Jay and his business partner Bill Stanhope owned Jay Design in Lawrenceville.  Jay was the founder of the Boys of Lawrenceville “a benevolent organization of gay men” and the author of a monthly column about pet adoption.  I've heard […]

The Trib on Pittsburgh Lesbian Scene – Huh?

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

OK, this just strikes me as weird.  The Tribune-Review sent a reporter to OUTrageous Bingo to do a story on the lack of a lesbian scene in Pittsburgh.  “Lesbian scene” should always be read as “no lesbians bars,” but we'll get to that in a moment. OUTrageous Bingo is a mixed event – gay men, […]
