OUT lays off entire editorial staff

It’s tough out there for magazines, newspapers, and Web sites (blogs included). We all rely on advertising for our revenue, and advertising has been lousy since the economy crashed, though it’s coming back slowly. So I don’t envy what OUT is going through. We’re all going through this now. I could imagine people complaining that OUT is firing staff and hiring back freelancers in order to avoid paying medical, retirement, etc. And maybe. But if the only alternative is to close the magazine down, and we’ve already lost so much gay media these past few years, I’m not sure the alternative, losing another big gay media name, is a good thing.
