Fort Lauderdale attorney Norm Kent has launched another weekly newspaper targeted at South Florida’s gay and lesbian community.
Kent, who founded the first gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) newspaper in 1999, announced the launch of SouthFloridaGayNews.com.
Although it will be a weekly printed tabloid, Kent said he chose to use “dot-com” in the masthead to "accommodate and acknowledge; promote and link the diverse media platforms a 21st century newspaper has to deliver."
Kent, a constitutional rights and criminal defense lawyer, first indicated last month that the new publication was coming, following news that the South Florida Blade, a paper he founded and sold in 2003, filed for bankruptcy protection.
The new publication will be published and distributed to more than 300 locations in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties on Mondays beginning in January.....ORIGINAL ARTICLE
