Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

The Correspondents are happy to report that the advice business over at the Post-Gazette has slowly improved. Fear not, they haven't kicked off the “Just Ask Reg” column much to the dismay of middle age white guys throughout the city. We understand that Mayor Opie had floated the idea of a nifty “Do What Dennis Says” daily column […]

Pittsburgh music you won’t want to miss

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Its a brrrrryyyy cold week here in da 'burgh.  Being firmly ensconced on the couch with some illness of indeterminate origin, I don't have much in the way of excitement or cool tidings to share with you.  My supervisor actually sent me home from work.  It was just like elementary school without the call for […]

Now that Main Stream Media (MSM) has sunk its teeth into this little tale of a man and his handcuffs, the gay drama just escalates.  This is like Queer Eye meets Cops.

Ravenstahl, McIntire, Pgh City Police: The Gay Angle No One is Talking About

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Not a single homo involved and this story has more twists and turns than a drag queen's virginal encounter with panty hose, a site much prettier than watching Luke Ravenstahl contort an explanation out of this story.  If you read the subtext, its right out of a gay movie — Slightly inebriated guy meets guy in uniform, intense […]

Is Pittsburgh a Gay Tourist Mecca? Post-Gazette Readers Chime In
