Steelers Country was revealed by Paradise, several Steelers executives, former Steelers defensive lineman Chris Hoke and, of course, Steely McBeam, the mascot whose cold, unseeing eyes are pure nightmare fuel. Terrible Towels were twirled. “Renegade” was played twice. It was as purely Steelers as an 11-5 season and AFC North title followed by an AFC Championship loss to the New England Patriots.
The Steel Curtain will set three records when it opens, in 2019 or otherwise. At 220 feet tall, it’ll be the tallest coaster in the state. Its nine inversions will be the most in the country. And the tallest inversion, at 197 feet, will be the tallest in the world. Kennywood teased those over the past several weeks as part of what it called "Project 412."
When it opens, the Steel Curtain will join the Sky Rocket and the Black Widow in the Kennywood lexicon — impressive and fun, but lacking in the classic feel that sets Kennywood apart from other amusement parks. It’ll never quite have the same feel as the Log Jammer it replaces or the Racer, which it will soon neighbor.
But it’s a good place to start, and the hole left by the Log Jammer will soon be filled in the most Pittsburgh way imaginable.
On July 2, it was announced that New Regency would produce Rub & Tug, a Pittsburgh-set movie based on the true story of massage parlor owner Dante "Tex" Gill, who was a key figure in Pittsburgh's "red light" district. By July 5, the backlash hit and the project had slandered itself.
The movie is set to star Scarlett Johansson as Gill, a trans man who identified as such before it was in our common lexicon. This is best evidenced by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's 2003 obituary of Gill repeatedly using "Ms. Gill," despite stating "she wanted to be known as "Mr. Gill"."
Trans actors and activists were quick to point out flaws in this casting, as they have in similar castings of non-trans actors playing trans characters. Actor Trace Lysette of Transparent tweeted, "So you can continue to play us but we can’t play y’all?"
