There aren't that many places on the internet where it's just as easy to find an LGBT-friendly bar as it is to find a support group, but the Pitt Men's Study Community Advisory Board has done just that.

Maybe you missed it (I certainly did), but the site, LGBTQ Pittsburgh, is basically ... well, the name kind of says it all. Trans resources: check. Gay friendly religious groups: yep. Also: bars, student groups and news updates.

“It’s relatively new – we’re just trying to show people it’s there,” says Jessica McGuinness, a clinical specialist at the Pitt Men's Study. She explains they started kicking around the idea for the website after Pittsburgh's Out — an LGBT publication — folded. Out was "always really good about posting health updates — especially during the HIV outbreak," McGuinness says. "They were also really good about keeping resources. But since then, there hasn't really been a really good collection of these resources for people to go: from the bars [to] support groups."

The website's creators acknowledge they might be missing some stuff and encourage suggestions, feedback and additions to the site by emailing PMS@stophiv.pitt.edu.
