Today’s digital outlets have made identity issues—on race, gender, and sexuality—core to their reporting.


BuzzFeed has a robust LGBT section, a Latino coverage editor, and hosted a recent Black History Month series. Fusion is a joint venture between Disney-ABC and Spanish language network Univision, which the site says targets a “young, diverse, and inclusive millennial generation,” and has a ‘justice’ vertical focused on these topics. The Atlantic, home to Ta-Nehisi Coates, a marquee writer on black America, led its site last week with a story on “The Sexism of Startup Land.”
