On November 16, The Washington Blade, America’s oldest LGBT newspaper, abruptly shut down due to the financial difficulties of its parent company. Vowing to continue its legacy, 17 former Blade employees went to work and managed to meet the deadline for the paper’s regular Friday publication. Today, they stood outside, hand delivering issues of the reborn Washington Blade, now called the DC Agenda. Their new invention is a weekly that provides critical coverage of local and national LGBT issues along with community news. In the future, employees hope that their new venture will grow and evolve to include a larger, more diverse group of voices.
