Jill Sobule Pittsburgh

  We love Jill Sobule. We’ve interviewed her repeatedly so I’m resisting the urge to say “hey Jill Sobule how about an(other) interview?” although I guess I just sort of did. Note: I just reread my interviews with her and saw this. So there’s that, Jill Sobule, if you want to do another interview. I’m […]

Pipeline: A Review (Yes, On Closing Day Because It Matters That Much)

Pipeline Pittsburgh

Yesterday, Ledcat and I went to the final performance of Pipeline by Dominique Morisseau at City Theatre. Earlier this month, I published a Q&A with local performer Brittney Chantelle about her work with 1 Hood Media Academy composing the soundtrack for this show. But circumstances kept us from actually seeing the production until today. To my pleasure, […]

Honoring the Lives and Deaths of Our Trans Neighbors on TDOR 2018

Transgender Day of Remembrance 2018 Pittsburgh

The Transgender Day of Remembrance of 2018 has a new degree of poignancy to me because of the additional layers of transphobia that are on display and thread through the lives of our transgender neighbors. It is also the first year I’m blogging about a trans woman from Pittsburgh among those killed this past year. […]

Temporary Move to New Blog Digs (It Ain’t Going Smoothly)

Dear readers, We are in the process of migrating our 13 years of blog content to a new webhost. Unfortunately, my current webhost has locked my domain and is unresponsive to my inquiries. I have pursued the appropriate steps to take it back into my control, but it could take awhile – up to 60 […]

Four Reasons We Use a Q&A Format to Interview Artists & The Exception We Made for Emily Saliers

  We like Q&A’s. Read our archive here (and the AMPLIFY archive here.) Recently, more than a few of our potential interviewees just didn’t return their Q&A so we were not able to promote their event/performance/activity. They also didn’t benefit from the SEO and outgoing links and all that lovely Interwebs magic. And there’s a […]

Turahn Jenkins Plan to Reintroduce Himself, Has No Plan to Support LGBTQ Community

Turahn Jenkins LGBTQ

The man who thinks LGBTQ people are sinful by nature wants to reintroduce himself and his campaign for District Attorney per his interview with The Incline.  Turahn Jenkins has had ample time to demonstrate that he’s learned lessons from his engagement with the LGBTQ community, but he seems more focused on saying that he’s ‘not […]

In Honor of Chicken Noodle Soup

When we were kids and felt sick, my mother – like many parents – made us chicken noodle soup. She used the Lipton Noodle Soup packets which were basically bouillon and wee bits of noodle, added water and her own twist of extra egg noodles to create a giant concoction of basically noodles with some […]

We have also invited SisTers Pgh and Garden of Peace to be part of our program because […]
