DNC: Don't talk about the Homos and Maybe They'll Go Away

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

The DNC's Annual Grassroots Report was released last week.  Not a single mention of the LGBTQ community.  Nada.  Howard Dean eliminates the gay outreach post, then wonders why people are upset …. and now this …. So what's happening in the Pennsylvania/Pittsburgh LGBT democratic wing ….You tell me.  Here's what BlogActive and LGBT political activist […]

Penn State: we said it but we didn't REALLY mean to protect homos

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

In an expected (but pathetic) twist to the Penn State Lesbian Discrimination case, lawyers for anti-lesbian coach Rene Portland and the University argued that the non-discrimination policy was a non-binding contract. You expect this from Portland who obviously didn't bind herself by the policy.  Plus, she's also claiming that former player (and plaintiff) Jennifer Harris was […]

A Slippery Slope to Hate: Gay Bar Murderer Snared in Arkansas

I would be remiss not to comment on the gay bar rampage in Massachusetts.  Last night, the murderous Jacob Robida was captured in Arkansas after killing his female passenger and a cop. (365gay.com) Robida targets gays armed with a hatchet and a gun.  People are asking why and scrambling to link his neo-Nazi fetish with his apparent homophobia.  Wake up […]

Catty Call – PG Column Throwback to When Women Were Girls

For proof the PG's inevitable downward spiral, one need look no further than “Just Ask Cat,” a misguided attempt to offer advice to Pittsburgh's lost and lovelorn.  Would-be columnist Catherine Specter dishes out bad advice more often than Joe Grata disses Penndot.   Ms. Specter is caught up in a retro-delusion that with the right […]

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Had dinner with my long-time friend Amy (27 years or so) and her adorable two-year old daughter last weekend.  She informed me that her 80ish grandmother had heard my “Lesbian Correspondent” segments on The Temporary John McIntire Show and was very pleased.  Apparently, Grammy is a big fan of both McIntire and Lynn Cullen.  Obviously […]

PA Rep Mike Diven: Homohater AND Illiterate?

It seemed like such a simple request.  She wrote to The Honorable Mike Diven, Republican member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.  Her mission?  To ascertain how Diven would vote on the proposed anti-gay marriage amendment to the Pennsylvania Constitution. What Diven offered in response is a testament to why the Democrats should be able […]
