The Final Hours at the Blade


The Washington City Paper took an inside look at the last few hours of the Washington Blade as management told its staff that it was shutting down on Monday afternoon.

The process started about 12:30 p.m., when movers arrived to evacuate boxes of personal and work-related items, and lasted through 3:30 p.m., the time designated for staffers to leave.

Steve Cheverton a friend of those on staff, told the City Paper that he arrived at the Blade offices at the National Press Club with his Ford F-150 truck.

"I know a lot of the employees, and I've supported them throughout, in all the gay pride marches and stuff like that," he said. "I just think it's really without integrity the way they did this. ... The least we can do is help these people take their stuff home."
