Blade Back in Business


It's confirmed: A new iteration of the recently shuttered gay newspaper Washington Blade will launch on Friday under the name The D.C. Agenda.

Former Blade and current D.C. Agenda editor Kevin Naff says, "We're launching a modest print publication on Friday, and the plan is to be on a full-scale printing press in two weeks for the December 4 issue." Like its former incarnation, The D.C. Agenda will be a weekly breakdown of Beltway and national news. Currently, a place-holding website called allows readers to donate money and keep apprised of news of the publication. A full-scale D.C. Agenda website will debut in a few weeks, according to Naff.

"Right now the full staff is on board," he says. "Obviously, that could change, but the staff is united. We're actually bringing on new people that can help [with the new venture], so we have a robust team working." Naff declined to state where funding for The D.C. Agenda is coming from.

The Washington Blade's parent company, Window Media, declared bankruptcy on Monday and shut down its publications, including the Blade and the Southern Voice.
