The new owner of a longtime weekly newspaper covering the gay and lesbian community in Atlanta said April 9 that the shuttered publication would reopen within the next week.
Southern Voice shut down in November because parent company Window Media LLC in Washington, D.C. filed for bankruptcy. New owner Matt Neumann, publisher of Gaydar Magazine LLC, says he’s going to start publishing the newspaper again April 14.
Neumann said the paper was supposed to launch earlier, but some minor issues have caused delays. He said he plans to print about 10,000 copies for now, with a goal of eventually growing that to 20,000.
He also plans to distribute copies in Tennessee, South Carolina and Alabama.
Neumann also bought rights to gay magazine David and began publishing it in March.
