After 25 years covering the LGBT community, Pink Paper is discontinuing its' daily website. It's not the only community news organisation to close but are such closures indication of a wider trend or is media, and more appropriately how news is consumed, evolving?
I always believed niche news organisations like in the LGBT community would survive. Once these newspapers were the only voice. But in moving on LGBT history could be forgotten.
Will the community continue to move toward complete inclusion in the mainstream? Will there always be a need for separate publications? Is this simply about the economics? And what of the new voices which will emerge as our consumption and social interaction of the news changes?
