Resolutions – Looking Back

2003 was my resolution year.  Frustrated with feeling disconnected from the LGBT community, I resolved to try at least one new lesbian friendly activity each month.  In hindsight, I feel very proud of my resolve and continue to reap the benefits of the contacts I made during that year.  And, of course, that resolution led […]

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

A little over a year ago, I received the coveted title of “Unofficial Lesbian Correspondent” for a local liberal talk radio program.  While it mostly entailed double entendres and Santorum bashing, it did give me a heady sense of unearned power and unabashed self-promotion.  And I parlayed it into a one-time gig judging a costume […]
