We interrupt these proceedings...

It is with a heavy heart that I have to announce today that three of our contributors will be leaving Jeff Newman, Randy Studt, and Margeaux May will all be leaving the blog as of this weekend. All three writers have contributed greatly to the success and intelligent conversation here on bilerico and we'll be sad to see them go, however we all know how many constraints and demands on our time LGBT organizing in Indiana requires. All three have assured me, however, that they will remain active in the comments on various posts so we'll still have the benefits of their wisdom as time permits.

One of the joys of running though is how often I'm asked by other folks in the community to be able to post on bilerico as a contributor. I've tried to limit the amount of bloggers so that we don't grow too quickly, but this offers us an opportunity to bring in some new blood to share their thoughts on current local and national items of relevance to the Hoosier LGBT community. Look for announcements over the coming days of new contributors joining bilerico! (And, of course, if you're interested in becoming a contributor to you can always email me at my bilerico email address and ask to be considered.)

Oh, I am going to miss all three. I do understand the exigencies of life and activism that tug at so many of us but those same busy people so often have so much to contribute.

May I suggest that, if the Blog Muse moves them, their oeuvres be posted under some sort of Bilerico Blogger Emeritus title?

I'm really sorry to see Jeff, Randy, and Margeaux go. I'll miss them.
