L.A. Newspaper Group Launches LGBT Blog for Long Beach

Before you read this story...
Dear reader, we're asking for your help to keep local reporting available for all. Your financial support keeps stories like this one free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

There's a relatively new blog that's produced by the Los Angeles Newspaper Group, which owns the Long Beach Press Telegram, Daily News, Pasadena Star News, the Daily Breeze and various other papers. Out in the 562 focuses on covering LGBT stories in the Long Beach area. Being the second largest city in L.A. County, and also home to a large gay community -- their pride event brought out around 80,000 people -- it's a good move for the community.
