From the Washington Blade's Ashes Comes DC Agenda

I was as shocked and saddened as anyone on Monday when it was revealed the Washington Blade (along with other Windows Media publications) had been shut down on Monday.

But, the great news is Kevin Naff and the former Blade team have launched a new publication called DC Agenda. The first issue was released today. The issue is slim compared to previous issues of the Blade, but it is an impressive effort considering they only had a few days to put it together.

Kevin had this to say about DC Agenda's mission:

The former staff of the Washington Blade remains united and DC Agenda represents our effort at continuing the important mission and work of the Blade. It will grow and evolve to include a much larger and more diverse group of voices. But the core of the Washington Blade's work remains unchanged. We will cover Congress, the White House, the LGBT rights movement, the D.C. marriage fight, local hate crimes and other political issues important to the LGBT residents of the city.

Ty has a list of locations where you can find the DC Agenda.

Follow DC Agenda on Twitter.
