One day Dino-Ray Ramos was chatting with his fellow journalists and asked: “Why shouldn’t we create a film and TV publication that spotlights people of color, the LGBTQ community, disabled community and other marginalized voices?”
So he built one.
However, this wouldn’t be a “regular” niche publication because diversity shouldn’t be niche.
DIASPORA is not a trade publication, but it is trade adjacent. It is a digital publication for everyone — specifically for gatekeepers who need to hear this news that gets eclipsed by the dominant culture. It is a publishing platform for film and TV industry news that focuses on multicultural and diverse representation via journalistic, high-quality, comprehensive stories while providing curated news. DIASPORA‘s goal is to become the leader and primary destination for news covering multicultural film, TV, media and culture in the entertainment industry — all coming from underrepresented voices who can bring a different perspective from the normal, white, cis, hetero lens that dominates today’s newsrooms.
In an industry craving diversity and where inclusive and representative narratives have proven to be monetarily successful at the box office and on television, DIASPORA will give the comprehensive information, news, tools and services that will help answer questions, address pertinent issues and fulfill their needs about everything under the umbrella of diversity and representation. This includes people of color, women, the LGBTQ community, the disabled community and other groups that have a history of being marginalized.
