FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Windy City Media Group and ChicagoPride announce enhanced and comprehensive community calendar

CHICAGO - In a significant move that unites two of the largest content providers for Chicago's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered ( LGBT ) community, Windy City Media Group and ChicagoPride today announced an agreement to create a unified community calendar designed to connect the LGBT population to the numerous diverse possibilities the community has to offer.

"We are thrilled to further enhance our partnership with ChicagoPride to deliver this useful and informative community resource," said Tracy Baim, publisher, Windy City Media Group., which produces Windy City Times, Nightspots, and Windy City Queercast. "We especially encourage groups to post benefits far ahead of time so that event planners can check for conflicting dates for their own events."

Beginning October 5, 2009, the event listings of the Windy City Times, Nightspots Magazine and ChicagoPride will be combined to generate CalendarQ, the most-comprehensive event and community calendar, to be published exclusively in the Windy City Times.

With a feature-rich design and interactivity that maximizes the capabilities of the online version, Calendar Q will be available at www.windycitymediagroup.com .

"Windy City Media Group has been a proven leader in Chicago's LGBT community," said Bill Pritchard, senior vice president, ChicagoPride. "With this new community initiative and partnership, both companies are positioned to better serve the members of our community, ultimately putting them in control of their busy schedules."

Community organizers, event planners, arts groups and bar owners can submit events online or by email: calendar@windycitymediagroup.com .

Most importantly, groups are strongly encouraged to post their events directly online. Under the Events button go to Post an Event; once entered, this information will flow to the Web sites of both companies, plus the print editions of Windy City Times and Nightspots.

The agreement between Windy City Media Group and ChicagoPride is the latest in collaborative efforts in a longstanding strategic relationship.
