I am currently the editor of Pittsburgh City Paper.
@ Pittsburgh Powerman:
Actually, this paper is run by the Illuminati. Please make a note of it.
Guess which editor was working on 3 hours' sleep that morning? THIS GUY. I'll correct it online; thanks for flagging it.
A previous comment on this story was deleted, per our commenting guidelines: "We may also delete comments that make personal attacks on story subjects -- especially if those attacks are threatening, unrelated to the content of the piece or are unsupported by factual evidence."
@ freeportsoccer554: I’m going to ask you to stop posting in this vein, and will delete future comments of this ilk. If you've got a personal grievance against someone in a photo here, that's your business. But this isn't the place for it. As it says in our comments policy, "If you want to use the internet to settle personal scores, you might want to try starting your own blog."
As for your concerns about our journalistic process: A photo essay isn't really geared to determining who the "real" lesbians are in a gathering (and as a previous commenter noted, we actually made no representation about the sexuality of anyone involved). All we were trying to do is capture the flavor of an event, based on what the people involved in it were doing. We chose this image -- which was not posed, by the way -- because we felt it summed up much of the spirit of Pride.
Naturally, I would feel bad if we credulously ran a photo of somebody trying to clown an event. But nothing in this image suggests that's what was going on, and in any case, cameras don't peer into people's souls. In fact, I'm unsure how we would "check our sources" in this context: Demand to know a photo subject's personal history? Request high-school transcripts? Consult with online commenters?
I WILL say I am perturbed by the extraneous apostrophe in "I'm her's," however.
According to county records, Harris did NOT vote in the primary.

@ DB -- the print edition went to press before the polls were closed. That's just how it works here; the print edition made that a little clearer. We've been providing coverage of the results over on our Blog: http://www.pghcitypaper.com/blogs/Blogh/
