A Gay Man Sees Equus at Pittsburgh Public Theater

The other night, my husband and I had the opportunity to see Equus at Pittsburgh Public Theater.  Equus has won an enormous number of awards, but I actually knew almost nothing about it, except it involved a horse and some nudity. After seeing it, I’d be hard pressed to think of a single play which is as erotic and intellectually evocative at the same time. If you love very good theater, this show is one[Read More…]

Pittsburgh Pride: The Resistance Is Progressive

Pittsburgh Pride: The Resistance Will be Publicized.

Pittsburgh City Paper recently published a story, by Rebecca Addison, titled, “Members of Pittsburgh LGBT community criticize EQT sponsorship of Pride Parade.” In it she details the issues some in the LGBTQ community have with the Delta Foundation, and highlights a counter march being organized in protest of the linkage of the (formerly called Pride March) EQT Equality March.

Three Things You Can Do to Support Trans Youth

Received this from Equality PA, and thought it was worth passing on.
