Capitol Hill has been the traditional heart of the GLBT community in Seattle for much longer than I've lived here.
This set me to wondering why the neighborhood blog for Capitol Hill Seattle rarely has anything to say about that heritage or the GLBT community.
Now it's true that to a large degree we write what we know or what we care about. I spend next to no time writing about parenting or fly-casting or basket-weaving. I don't know if there are any GLBT folks writing for CHS, but if there are they don't seem to be writing much about GLBT issues.
No posts relating to Seattle's Pride celebrations that I can find. Only five results with the word "gay". Only one with the words "lesbian", "bisexual" and "Transgender". True to other Seattle obsessions, there are 25 posts with the word "coffee".
It strikes me as odd that in the blog for what is arguably the gayest neighborhood in the 2nd gayest city in all of these United States that there are so few posts reflecting that diversity.
It leads me to ask whether the Capitol Hill Seattle blog really reflects all of Capitol Hill, or just for the "Fancy Pants" part.
