Gay trans man Pittsburgh

What is your greatest hope for the LGBTQ community in Western Pennsylvania? 

I hope for progress honestly. I hope people don’t see inclusiveness as a burden but a part of life. Being inclusive isn’t restricting straight cis people, it’s about not limiting life to just them

How ‘Murphy Brown’ is Telling White Women With Good Intentions to Do Better

Murphy Brown Thanksgiving

Spoilers Ahead. When I heard about the return of Murphy Brown, I was a little more than skeptical, a sentiment shared by many who thought we should probably stop at Will & Grace before this reboot/reinvent/reignite craze forced us to acknowledge there are lessons to be learned from the past. It is not just the show […]

Happy Holiday Eve! Bring on the Sushi …

Holiday Sushi

Anticipation can be a lovely thrill. Nothing thrills so much as being smack up against a beloved holiday with only ‘one sleep’ between you and satisfaction.

That Time NPR Tweeted About the Dunhoff-Kerr Family Thanksgiving Politics

NPR Sue Kerr Twitter

Our usual gang of relatives are all like-minded albeit ranging from moderate Democrats to very liberal. Talking politics at the holidays is a way to bond, to feel the comfort of like-minds, to acknowledge the big bad world while appreciating our companionship. — Sue Kerr (@PghLesbian24) November 19, 2018   (Be sure to read all […]

That Time We Merged Our Separate Giant Eagle Advantage Cards

Giant Eagle Advantage Card Shared Account
