Pride Month: The History of Pittsburgh’s Gay Pride Parade Spans Decades

+

When you close your eyes and picture Pittsburgh in 1973, what comes to mind? It may be the waning years of the city’s once-mighty steel industry, or the then-newly built Three Rivers Stadium. In that vein, maybe it’s a winning baseball team with the likes of Willie Stargell, something Pittsburghers today can only dream of, or Led Zeppelin’s historic concert that drew 40,000 fans to the stadium — and ended in a brawl. But 1973 was an important year for the city’s LGBTQ+ community, too; it marked the first gay pride march in Pittsburgh history. On Sunday, June 17, Pittsburgh "came out," according to a news article from Gay News Pittsburgh, a periodical that ran from 1972 until September of 1976. Pride festivities ran from June 12-17. The "Gay Pride Week" featured, among other things, a gay cabaret, a gay dance, a symposium with speakers and workshop sessions, a lesbian/feminists night in Uptown and a march on the 17th, winding 3 miles from Downtown’s Market Square to Flagstaff Hill in Schenley Park. The march concluded with a picnic in North Park. Watch any NFL Game live online for free and in HD. We offer multiple streams for each NFL Streams live event available on our website.

Jack Suwinski’s late blast delivers win for Pirates Fans

+

Newbie Jack Suwinski conveyed incredibly Saturday, sending off a two-run stroll off homer in the 10th inning to lift the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 2-1 triumph over the Arizona Diamondbacks at PNC Park. Suwinski's down winning homer fell off previous Pirates nearer Mark Melancon and empowered the Pirates to even the end of the week series with Arizona going into Sunday's series finale. Preceding Suwinski's stroll off piece, it looked like individual newbie Roansy Contreras would be on the snare for the misfortune regardless of a strong third beginning on the season. Contreras worked the initial 5 2/3 innings and surrendered four hits and two strolls while striking out eight.

Keller breaks bats; Allen cracks jokes

The numbers tell a partial story of Mitch Keller’s second outing of the spring. Three innings. One baserunner, via walk. Two strikeouts. Almost more impressive than the numbers, Keller is keeping bat manufacturers busy. "When you throw 100, you're probably going to get some broken bats in there as well," outfielder Greg Allen said with a smile. In two consecutive innings in the Pirates' 3-3, rain-shortened tie against the Phillies, Keller threw a fastball that shattered a bat, the unmistakable sound of splintering lumber reverberating throughout the stadium.
