I am so pleased to share this with you – Pittsburgh LGBTQ Charities has been voted into the finalist round of the Pittsburgh City Paper ‘Best of Pittsburgh’ Reader’s Poll. The category is Best Social Justice Organization. That is so amazing – this is our first year of programming and supports. I think the work […]
The results are in in (print) and this blog was voted 2nd place by the readers voting in the City Paper Best of Pittsburgh poll for 2021. That’s not shabby. I was debating posting about it because I wanted to give the City Paper a shout-out for being an important media source especially on queer […]
It is a nice year to be a contender because we can potentially actually visit the winners – maybe, depending on how well we follow the guidelines. That’s progress! I am honored to be a finalist (the top ten vote getters) in three categories. Best Local Blog – so this isn’t all me and I’ve […]

Did you vote yet? I was asked to make a last minute plug for my blog Pittsburgh Lesbian Correspondents – will you vote me before Sunday? I won this category in 2016, the first time they ever had it and back when it was Best Local Blogger rather than Best Local Blog. I took […]
It is rare enough to receive acknowledgement, much less awards, for blogging. Even more rare are awards when like me, you are well past the average blog expiration date (2.5-3 years.) When I became the first person ever to be voted “Best Blogger” in the City Paper Readers Poll in 2016, I was absolutely shocked […]
It is such a fluke thing to be named the best of something that literally hundreds of other people do everyday right here in Pittsburgh. I don’t know what to say beyond thank you. Thank you for reading. Thank you for voting. Thank you for sharing our content. Thank you for supporting a blogosphere that values the voices of queer and fat and disabled female bloggers among many others.
Read all the blogs. You won’t regret it. (And read #AMPLIFY, too!)
