Nuvo Newsweekly is an Indianapolis publication that serves as Indy's alternative newspaper. They have a long history of breaking news stories that the mainstream media just won't touch - at least not until Nuvo does. In the issue that hit stands today, Nuvo takes a look at the local elections. The Bilerico Project gets a mention under "Online sources for local political coverage." It's good to see we still retain our local fan base. Thanks to our local readers for consistently ranking us as one of Indiana's most politically influential blogs.
The Bilerico Project (Bil Browning, founder)
Three years ago, Bil Browning had the idea that a blog might be the best way to ameliorate in-fighting in the local gay community - communication supposedly being the key to better relationships. That didn't work out so well - posts were initially sparse and there remains discord today - but Bil kept at it. The Bilerico Project now has 40 hand-picked correspondents (50 by year's end) from around the world, including bigwigs from the Human Rights Campaign and the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force. Still, the Bilerico Project remains committed to local issues. Following Andre Carson's appointment to the City-County Council, Browning questioned why there aren't any GLBT people on the council, arousing interest and an interview from three local radio stations.
