Just Out, an LGBT alternative serving a Portland, Ore., readership has ceased publication.

A publisher’s announcement was posted to the paper’s Website Dec. 26.

The announcement read: “Effective December 26, 2011, Just Out newsmagazine, serving Portland’s LGBTQ community since 1983, is no longer in business. Three years of recession have taken their toll.…”

Readers responded with offers to rally the community and collect donations of $10-$50.

Others suggested launching a new publication.
