Washington Blade returns this week

"The Washington Blade, the 40-year-old publication which served as the LGBT community’s newspaper of record, will return to newsstands Friday after its former parent company filed for bankruptcy and closed the paper," reports Lou Chibbaro Jr. "Since the newspaper’s closing, former Blade staff members have produced a new print and online publication under the name DC Agenda. DC Agenda recently announced the acquisition of all assets of the Blade, the nation’s oldest LGBT newspaper, from a federal bankruptcy court in Atlanta. The purchase included the Blade name, all trademarks and copyrights and the entire 40-year archive."
