Editor Grace Moon notified the staff of contributors and bloggers via e-mail on Friday afternoon.
Moon said in the e-mail that the entire staff had been let go and that Friday would be her last day.
According to the e-mail, the site will remain online but no new editorial content will be posted.
The site was the brainchild of Showtime and L Word creator Ilene Chailken and figured prominently into several episodes. L Word stars Jennifer Beals, Leisha Hailey and Kate Moennig were attached to the site at its outset. According to sources, the announcement came as a complete surprise to the staff.
The site sought to compete with the Logo run AfterEllen.com .
Staff members at OurChart.com could not be reached for comment late Friday afternoon.
