DIASPORA was launched in 2021 by journalist Dino-Ray Ramos as a “trade adjacent” publication,  a digital publication for everyone — specifically for gatekeepers who need to hear this news that gets eclipsed by the dominant culture.

It continues to be a platform for film and TV industry news that focuses on multicultural and diverse representation of intentionally exploited communities. Since then, DIASPORA is pivoting from the breaking news of it all.

DIASPORA won’t necessarily be participating in the daily grind of chasing leads, breaking stories and constantly putting up content, copying and pasting press releases to form an article to the point of burn out. Instead, it is being more intentional with its platform.

DIASPORA is shifting its lens as a media comapy that is less about “breaking news” and provides DEI consultation as well as partnering with other like-minded companies to collaborate on projects and events. Dino-Ray Ramos will also be available for speaking engagements as well as hosting and moderating opportunities  DIASPORA is a media platform focused on contributing and supporting content and ideas that are providing substantial systemic change and progress in film, TV and media.
