The Washington (D.C.) Blade has launched a Web portal that is a sort of Romenesko for gay- and lesbian-related news (see an example here).

BladeWire culls news items of interest to the GLBT (gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender) community and packages them in a wire service format. Window Media, the parent company of the D.C.-based gay weekly, is offering BladeWire free to other Web sites.

Justin P. Smith, Window Media’s internet content manager, said in an interview during last week’s National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association annual convention that the news ticker was launched on the D.C. gay paper’s Web site, and was expected to be on all other Window Media sites by the end of this week.
