John Pixley blog

Claremont COURIER columnist John Pixley has his own blog called Queerx3. One of COURIER readers' favorite columnists, Pixley has been writing for the COURIER since the mid-1980s.

If you're a fan of his column and unique perspective, you'll definitely enjoy his blog. Be sure to check it out. Here, he explains the name for his blog:

I call it Queer3, because I'm queer in three ways: 1. I'm gay. 2. I'm severely disabled with Cerebral Palsy; hence, my physique, including my speech, is queer. 3. I'm a quaker (unprogrammed). Quakers have been called "a peculiar people." Stretch this a bit, and you get queer. I think this give me a pretty unique perspective on things.

  1. I am so thrilled to learn more about Mr. John Pixley. I grew up knowing his name, knowing the Pixley's - I am a Claremont "girl." I read his column as it is possibly the only well written bit in the Courier :) I look forward to reading the blog! With love - Karen
