Newsmagazine Just Out is shutting down, according to a note on its website Monday.

The publication has served Portland's gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered and queer community since 1983. The online notice states simply that "three years of recession have taken their toll."

Publisher Marty Davis confirmed the closure in an email to The Oregonian: "Just Out has closed its doors and shut down its computers." She said in a follow-up email that there are no plans to continue online.

Local blogger Byron Beck broke the news on his site, linking to an 11 a.m. post on Just Out's Facebook page.

"It is with great sadness that I have to announce today that Just Out newspaper, having put up a helluva fight against this dammed 'Great Recession,' will be unable to continue publishing. Our 12/9 issue was/is our last publication. Thank you for being our 'Friends' and for reading Just Out, these past 29 years."

With 10% of the population in their target demographic, you’d think they couldn’t fail.

Not enough demand for queer news to support a queer newspaper. Well so sad boys on boys and girls on girls, boys with or girls with animals, you’ll just have to get your queer news from PC CNN, MSNBC, ABC, etc.

29 years is about a generation.

Why did they think it would last longer?

Well finally——some ‘change we can believe in’.
Well don’t you find it ‘queer’ that it flourished with Republican presidents but tanks when Obama is the king? Se-la-vi.

Portland’s mayor Sam Adams will be devastated, no doubt.

They failed because it couldn’t adapt to the modern Internet. It’s essentially the same problem that has drastically altered more mainstream newspapers, too.
