Window Media co-founder / Washington Blade Executive Editor Chris Crain announced his departure in an editorial on Friday.
According to a Window Media release, Crain “is leaving September 15 after almost a decade in charge of editorial operations for the company that publishes the Washington Blade, the Houston Voice, Southern Voice, David-Atlanta Magazine, and the Express Gay News and 411 magazine in South Florida. Crain, who remains a part owner of Window Media, will be relocating to Rio De Janeiro to be with his partner.”
Crain: “It’s time once again for me to walk across that graduation stage, but I leave knowing these publications are in very capable hands. Next week will be my last as editor. I am moving to Rio De Janeiro to be with my partner, who is Brazilian and cannot come here to be with me because U.S. immigration laws don’t recognize same-sex relationships.”
