Gay & Lesbian Times, which is under investigation by the district attorney's office, did not make it into print this week (Oct. 7 edition). The online edition did not come out, either. Owner Mike Portantino is ailing. According to one rumor, employees have been told they have been laid off, but I could not pin that down. According to a recorded message on his phone, Portantino's mail box is full and can't accept more messages. I have more calls out and will report more when I get information. The publication has been in a battle with competitor Gay & Lesbian News. The district attorney is looking into whether Gay and Lesbian Times has been overstating circulation figures, along with possible financial irregularities. As earlier reported, Gay & Lesbian Times has had financial problems.
