May 17 marks the 10th anniversary of Baltimore OUTloud, one of two Baltimore-based LGBT newspapers. Mike Chase left his position as editor of Gay Life, the publication under the auspices of the GLCCB, and along with other partners formed a group, Pride Media, Ltd., which is the parent company of Baltimore OUTloud. Several writers and staff who had previously worked for Gay Life joined the new paper.
“We attribute OUTloud’s success for the past 10 years to the support from the communities we serve, our advertisers and talented writers,” said Jim Williams, co-publisher.
The commemorative issue on May 17 contains a nostalgic look at the past 10 years, and several of the original writers will be returning.
“We are so proud and honored to have reached this milestone,” said Jim Becker, also a co-publisher. “It could not have happened without our loyal advertisers and the incredible hard work and dedication of our staff and volunteer writers.”
