Hard times for Portland’s Just Out Newsmagazine, Toronto’s Glad Day’s bookstore and Minneapolis’ True Colors Bookstore.
Making sense of the News Corp hacking scandal, and why bad news for them could be good news for you.

“Here’s what my friends will never do, that you and your friends DID do: we will never trust a company that hires us, no matter how good, how proud it is at this moment, to stay loyal to us.”
In which I go off on a tangent about gay male spaces claiming to be lesbian spaces when they totally are not.
I wonder what Queerty would say about Queerty closing?
What’s happening in the magazines, you ask? Well, it’s the 5th Annual Power 50 over at OUT and boy are they WHITE! Meanwhile, Marie Claire features the girls of Glee and I ramble on about power or something.
“To ask NYTimes.com’s 33 million unique monthly visitors to switch to a cash-for-manufactured-goods-based model from the standard everything-online-should-be-free-for-reasons-nobody-can-really-explain-based model is pretty fearless.”

Will gay media find a new business model before we lose our greatest resources?
Vogue does Hillary Clinton’s “surprise appointment” with Annie Lebowitz photos and a whole lotta Mascara talk. Another major gay media company bites the dust, taking the Washington Blade with it, and a new lez website sprouts in London. Also; boys kissing for beer and facebook stalking!
This just in: Obama to deliver speech to room full of gay people. What are you gonna do without Conde Nast’s parenting, wedding, and gourmet cooking advice? Autostraddle can help. Also; Lady Gaga endorses the National Equality March and Illinois introduces gay marriage bill.
“A 62-year-old woman faces a felony charge after allegedly hurling wine bottles at her girlfriend of 35 years after an argument, according to an affidavit released Monday.”
