Reverend Janet Edwards Faces Second Round of Charges Over Lesbian Wedding

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Reverend Edwards once again faces church court charges for performing a lesbian wedding. Previous charges were dropped due to technicalities, which some suspect was a convenient way for the Presbyterian Church to sidestep the larger issues around gay and lesbian members of the faith community. A Florida minister has again filed a complaint against the […]

Pittsburgh Civil Disobedience Done Right

  Anti-war protesters chained together, their arms covered by tar and plastic pipe, blocked the entrances to Carnegie Mellon University's National Robotics Engineering Center in Lawrenceville this morning. About 50 people were involved, including those chained together, those bringing them coffee and food, a makeshift band and other supporters. This is the type of civil […]

The Trib – Joey Porter’s slurs offensive to some

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Imagine if Joey Porter mated with Ann Coulter … they could spit out homobigot puppies left and right, well mostly just right.  I just had to chime in on this.  The Tribune Review printed a list of Joey's highs and lows during his Steeler tenure. I won't recant all the amazing athletic feats he accomplished […]

Ann Coulter “Implies” John Edwards is a Faggot

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Here's what she said today at the Conservative Political Action Conference.  h/t 2 Political Junkies: I was going to have a few comments on the other Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, but it turns out you have to go into rehab if you use the word ‘faggot,’ so I — so kind of an impasse, […]

Buh Buh Joey Porter: Gay Bashing Steeler Cut Loose to Free Agency

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Sometimes greed can be a dyke's best friend.  In this case, it means Joey Porter will take his trash-talking bigotry and hit the road for greener pastures.  I don't care if he made 879 tackles last year and was Most Valuable Stud three years running or even if he did single-handedly hold back the entire […]

More on Brent Dugan: Clergy, KDKA meet to agree neither is homophobic

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

The City Paper covers the recent meeting of the minds of the Christian Associates of Southwestern Pennsylvania and KDKA head honchos in which they determined well, really not much of anything other than to mutually continue beating their own drums of “we did nothing wrong.” That's a complete load of hooey and Brent Dugan is […]

My Wish List for PrideFest Entertainment 2007

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

 Pittsburgh is fortunate to have a talented pool of queer and queer-friendly performance artists, some of whom I have met over the past year.  They include singer-songwriters, spoken word artists, comedians, poets, rappers, puppeteers, and so forth.  PrideFest is the annual community celebration of all things queer (or gay) and includes a chunk of stage […]

Temporary New Location for OUTrageous Bingo

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Just an FYI that the April and May editions of OUTrageous Bingo, sponsored by the Gay and Lesbian Community Center and Shepherd Wellness Center, will be held at CCAC Boyce Campus in Monroeville.  This is apparently due to some planned renovations at the regular site, Goodwill Industries, on the Southside.  According to my best sources, […]

Meliss and Tammy at the Oscars

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Ellen was funny. Too bad we had to sit through 750 tribute and homage videos, not to mention a sound effects choir.  B-O-R-I-N-G.  I would rather listen to all the flaming fashion critics screech their way through the entire red carpet line, including the men, than sit through that again.  Word of advice — let […]

The Trib Weighs in on Gay Sheep and Tim Hardaway

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Local opinion seems to be that our own con-alternative paper, the Tribune Review, is pretty anti-gay.  The fact, however, is that most of their gay coverage has been consistent with mainstream thought on gays — we aren't so bad after all, its not such a big deal, don't we have better things to worry about […]
