The Blade Foundation

The Washington Blade is the oldest and most respected LGBTQ publication in the U.S. The newspaper began to publish in October 1969, three months after the Stonewall riots in New York. This legacy and commitment to impactful journalism, along with a strong belief that LGBTQ journalists should be afforded the opportunity to cover the communities to which they belong, has allowed the Blade to expand its mission abroad.

Three years ago it expanded its reach to the West Coast with the launch of the Los Angeles Blade given a broad coast to coast reach that covers local, state and national news with the only presence in the White House Correspondents Pool under Blade reporter, Chris Johnson. The Washington Blade also launched the Blade Foundation as a way to build resources for the next generation of journalists from the LGBTQ community.
