Lesbian Take on Brokeback Mountain

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

I hope you do go see this soon.  I am a total loss for words to describe howwonderful this movie is.  The cinematography is stellar, but so is thestoryline and the acting.  Heath Ledger blew me away, definitely an Oscarworthy performance.  Michelle Williams (played his wife) was also stunninglygood for a former Dawson's Creek star.

Sam Hens-Greco named Campaign Field Director for Democratic Congressional Candidate Georgia Berner. I'm not aware of Ms. Berner's position on LGBT issues but I'm going to find out.  Her opponent in the primary, Jason Altmire, is prolife which of course opens the door to the concept of a right to privacy inherent in many LGBT […]

The Boondocks on Gay Marriage

  I am a regular read of The Boondocks strip in the PG, but I must confess that I am often confounded.  I get the feeling that I'm definitely not “in” on the real humorous element and/or the real spin on the issue.  But I suppose that is how any white middle class lesbian would […]

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

From today's paper.  My favorite lines Having seen “Brokeback Mountain,” I can promise you two things: It's not a social contagion planted on the screen to infect America's youth, and the water-cooler comics who've been making all those gay-cowboy jokes without seeing the film are going to look really stupid on Monday morning.

How Many Costas are there?

Pgh Lesbian Correspondents

Can ANYONE tell me exactly how many Costas roam these hills?  Every time I turn around, I see reference to yet another Costa kin either holding some obscure office or being appointed to something.  Guy Costa should just be hired by KDKA since he gets almost as much airtime as pretty boy Jeff Verszyla.  Given […]
