…due to what seems a standard bankruptcy, but may also be symptomatic of changes in the wider media world, as more and more content moves off of newsprint and on to screens: the Washington Blade has gone out of business. I remember when it was an 11″x17″ folded and saddle-stapled newsletter that was handed out at meetings and was available in just a couple of places in Washington, D.C. Then it gained advertisers, circulation, and availability as public acceptance of gay people grew, including, for example, lots of full-page ads aimed at gay couples who were buying houses, furniture, cars, and other things that straight couples bought. And now it’s joined a lot of mainstream newspapers in bankruptcy court. Well, nothing lasts forever.
