Portland gay paper Just Out is shutting down after 29 years, The Oregonian reported.

“Effective December 26, 2011, Just Out newsmagazine, serving Portland's LGBT community since 1983, is no longer in business,” a note on the paper's website reads. “Three years of recession have taken their toll.”

In an email to The Oregonian, publisher Marty Davis confirmed the closure: “Just Out has closed its doors and shut down its computers.”

Davis added that there are no plans to continue publishing content online. The free publication was published twice monthly.

According to the paper's Facebook page, its December 9th issue was its last.

“It is with great sadness that I have to announce today that Just Out newspaper, having put up a helluva fight against this dammed 'Great Recession,' will be unable to continue publishing,” editors wrote in a Monday post. “Thank you for being our 'Friends' and for reading Just Out, these past 29 years.”

The decision to shutter was described as a “total surprise” by blogger Byron Beck, who freelanced for the paper.

The closure comes just months after Logo-owned gay news site 365Gay.com suddenly ceased operations on September 30.
