Washington Blade Newspaper Relaunches Under New Name

By Mana Rabiee

The now-defunct gay newsletter, the Washington Blade, has reappeared in a new incarnation under the name "D.C. Agenda".

Kevin Naff was editor of the Washington Blade and has overseen the publication of the new gay-community paper which printed its first issue Friday. Naff says the Agenda will continue to focus on the Blade's core strengths: hard news, congressional coverage and developments in the Washington metropolitan area.

But the D.C. Agenda will have to be different from the Blade if it's to survive beyond the holidays. "I think this gives us a chance to really reconnect with the local community. We're looking to diversify the kind of voices that people were maybe used to seeing in the Blade," says Naff.

On Friday, Naff hopes to double last week's distribution to 10,000 copies and to have a full broad sheet format in the week following.
