D.C. Gay Newspaper To Publish Under Old Name

Play associated audio

WASHINGTON (AP) The oldest U.S. newspaper for gays and lesbians will start publishing under its original name again.

The former Washington Blade had been publishing as the D.C. Agenda after the paper's parent company abruptly closed in November. Donations kept the publication going, and in February three staffers bought the newspaper's name, assets and archives in bankruptcy court for $15,000.

Editor Kevin Naff said Tuesday that the paper surveyed readers about the new and old names and that readers were overwhelmingly in favor of going back.

The paper, which was founded in 1969, will return to being called the Washington Blade in its next issue, which comes out Friday.
