‘The Village Voice’ Ends Print Edition

The Village Voice is ending its print edition. Above is the cover I loved most as a college kid in Chicago. Have carried it around for 25 years. And counting.

Via Joe.My.God.The Voice's last print edition was, Tuesday, August 22, 2017.

Going forward, the publication — around since 1955 — will be digital-only.

I always saw The Voice as a gay publication. As Joe notes, the personals in the back were gayer than Jeff Sessions tidying up his kitchen. The articles were a reflection of a liberal and gay-inclusive world into which I hoped to fit, and Michael Musto's column had me seeing stars where there were none.

Print is dying faster than Old Hollywood movie stars!
