Memphis gay newspaper latest to cease publication

MGLCCThe Memphis Triangle Journal and its sister publication Triangle Quarterly have announced they will cease print publications.

The Triangle Journal has been produced monthly since 1990 by an all-volunteer staff through the Memphis Gay & Lesbian Community Center (MGLCC).

In a posting on the publication’s website, Len Piechowski, president of the MGLCC writes:

“Due to a decreasing cultural reliance upon printed media and a subsequent dwindling of advertising revenues, the board of directors of Memphis Gay and Lesbian Community Center (MGLCC) has recently decided to curtail the printed version of Triangle Journal and Triangle Quarterly.

“Furthermore, the board also decided to place the online version of Triangle Journal on hiatus pending the development of a new and improved MGLCC website that will incorporate items of widespread community interest. The web site is slated for implementation in the late summer.”

The closure comes just weeks following the announcement from Window Media — which published the Washington Blade, Southern Voice, David Atlanta, South Florida Blade, 411 Magazine, Houston Voice, and the previously defunct Genre magazine — that it had shuttered operations and filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

Last week, the founder of Southern Voice annouced plans to launch GA Voice, a new gay publication in Atlanta. And last month, DC Agenda emerged as a new gay publication in the District of Columbia, founded by former employees of the Washington Blade.
