We Win ‘Outstanding Blog’ in the 33rd #GLAADawards

I’ll write an actual blog post about this turn of events, my second win and being only the second person in history to win twice, later. Today, I’m going to the movies and cleaning the living room. Thank you.

Mental Health Awareness Month Blogging 2022

Just a programming note that we will be focusing on mental health topics during May, Mental Health Awareness Month. Keep an eye out for posts and feel free to reach out with suggestions for topics. Note that I file these posts under the category of Health with tags to specify if it is mental health […]

This Blog Celebrates Our Sweet Sixteen Today

Most blogs are abandoned within 90 days. Those that endure typically last 2-3 years. That works out to my blog being 5-8 “generations” removed from the blogs someone launches as a New Years resolution in 2022. I don’t remember celebrating my actual sweet 16, but it was certainly not like the movies. I was all […]

This Blog Nominated for 4th Consecutive National LGBTQ Blogging Award #GLAADawards

Something that got a little lost in my wedding furor is this exciting news – Pittsburgh Lesbian Correspondents was nominated again for the GLAAD Media Awards. The 32nd Annual GLAAD Media Awards recognize and honor media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) community and the […]

Write Something Gay, They Said

I dislike when anyone tells me what to write about or what not to write about on my blog. “Sue,” they say with concern. “Your posts are a little intense/personal/uncomfortable-to-read.” They tell me they miss my political content and toss out potential topics to inspire me, much like people toss snacks at zoo animals to […]

Our Blog Named Finalist in GLAAD Media Awards for Third Consecutive Year

GLAAD Media Awards

This genuinely caught me off guard in a good way; we were again nominated as a finalist in the GLAAD media awards in the Outstanding Blog category. You may recall we were also a finalist in 2018, then won the category in 2019. A third consecutive nomination is humbling and energizing as we head into […]

Patreons, PayPal, and Prose

Patreon

I have six patrons through the Patreon site and four sustaining monthly donors through Paypal. One is for $10, the rest are $5 and $1. Collectively and individually, they make my heart soar. Such flight of fancy language, but I’m not exaggerating. To know that these ten people care enough about the work that we […]

The Post Where I Ask For Help

Pittsburgh's Charlie Brown Tree

Saturday evening, we had dinner at Eat n Park with our niblings, ages 12 and 8. Elijah, the 8-year-old, was talking to me about our house; the boys were coming to visit our kittens after dinner. He looked at me thoughtfully and said “What do you do for work, Aunt Sue?” I told him I […]
