CHARLOTTE — On Tuesday, QNotes announced the resignation of editor Matt Comer, who will be stepping down from his position on Jan. 20, 2012, to pursue new opportunities with local, statewide and national LGBT communities.
Yes it is true. Matt is stepping down after four years of making Qnotes only about Charlotte and his personal interests. I’m sure there will be many who will miss him, however I’m not one of them.
From the owner of Qnotes:
“As with any transition in life or business, saying goodbye can often be bittersweet,” said Jim Yarbrough, publisher of QNotes. “While we are sad to see Matt leave, we wish him well on his future endeavors and are excited to tackle the transition process as we look for a new editor.”
“I’m proud to have helped develop QNotes’ new media successes and humbled to have worked with such a brilliant team of staff and contributing writers. I’ll remember fondly the memories I’ve made here and cherish them.”
Comer added, “Though I am departing QNotes, I will remain a committed advocate for the LGBT communities of Charlotte and North Carolina. I’m looking forward to my continued community involvement in the Queen City and in this great state, especially as our community faces the anti-LGBT constitutional amendment in May.”
So Matt, don’t let the door hit you on your way out.. Maybe the New Editor will finally reach out to the Eastern Carolina… and make them feel apart of the NC LGBT Community..
