What's CLGBT? Think of it as the marriage of CL and LGBT we've been going together for years, but we've decided to make it official (and we didn't even have to move to Connecticut).
Creative Loafing, like many alternative newsweeklies, has long been in tune with the LGBT community. We've covered Steve Stanton and Steve Kornell, GaYbor and Grand Central, TIGLFF and St. Pete Pride, because they're a vital part of what makes Tampa Bay a diverse and stimulating place. And CL Tampa has always been supportive of its LGBT staffers, including myself and my predecessor as editor, Jim Harper both of us openly gay men.
But there's so much LGBT stuff to talk about now has there been a day in the last few years when there wasn't a major gay story in the news? and there are so many local LGBT voices deserving to be heard, that it seemed about time that CL dedicate a site to the community. Hence, CLGBT (cltampa.com/LGBT).
