The Washington Blade Closes…for now.


What started out as an easy going Monday morning, quickly delved into a chaotic rush for information.  A couple of hours ago, queerty.com posted

SHOCK: Blade Publisher Window Media Closes

Now I knew that Windows Media, the parent company to the Blade was in trouble, but I didn’t think it would come to this point so fast!

I am triply saddened because 1) The Blade has been a great resource for the national GLBT community for the last 40 years; 2) I was fortunate enough to have been asked to contribute to their publication through op-eds and letters to the editor over the past eight months; and 3) The Blade had extended out a pro-bono hand to Capital Pride in offering office space.

Now, I am off to ZipCar over to help clear out the Capital Pride office.  Oh what a day!
