Atlanta Gay Newspaper Disappears

A newspaper devoted to filling the gay news void in Atlanta left by the shuttering of the Southern Voice publication has itself stopped printing.

After five issues, the Atlanta Free Press most likely ran out of funding, reports the Atlanta Progressive News. Though the content of the Free Press's sixth issue could be found online, the print publication couldn't be located in any LGBT-frequented bar, restaurant, coffee shop, gym, salon, or bookstore. Potential advertisers also reported having trouble reaching sales representatives. One source told the Progressive News that the Free Press lost its editor and had no one else to produce content.

One of the owners of the Free Press, Chip O'Kelley, said the newspaper was still in existence even though all evidence pointed to the contrary. The Progressive News reports that many new Atlanta-based gay publications are readying launches.
