The Story

Mediaversity Reviews began life on Tumblr in December 2016 as a place for Li Lai to capture her thoughts on representation in television and film. The website was launched in May 2017 to house the reviews and has since added research briefs and a small stable of diverse contributors.

Mediaversity is a passion project that receives some crowdfunding through Patreon, but that remains mostly self-funded with the bulk of its budget spent paying diverse writers from marginalized communities. By day, Li works as the creative director for a bipartisan nonprofit for immigration reform in New York City. Her professional background includes experiential marketing and fashion design.
