History of the Paper
Outexpressions began as a hand printed Zine with 300 subscribers in 1995 and
hand delivered to friends in Queer West Toronto Ontario. In 1996 it became The
Inside Story Newspaper (Published on a Listserv.). In 2003 became part of Gay
West Community Network web site. There was a monthly eBlast with 25,000 subscribers,
we had software problems in 2009 and the mailing list was abandoned.
The paper was donated to the QueerWest.org in November 2008. At a Special General
Meeting of the Board of Directors, a vote was taken in May 2009, to accept the
donation and changed the name to Outexpressions Newspaper and drop the queer
west village blog associated with it.
The Board decided it would be run it as a social enterprise of QueerWest.org,
in recognition of the organisations broader national focus. Any advertising
revenues generated by OuteXpressions would support the Non_profit and its services
to the community. The entertainment pages garners 40,000 page views a day. Outexpressions
Newspaper somewhat like Gay Life, a publication of the Community
Center of Baltimore Maryland,
