The Q is a media culture network that provides media recommendations and showcases the voices of Gen-Z BIPOC. We aim to be a space where people can easily receive updates on films to watch, albums to listen to, and books to read, while filtering out trashy, insensitive news often associated with pop-culture sites. Every week, our diverse team of creative writers curate a newsletter with a featured article, a new album, a film, a playlist, a book, and something we found funny that week. On top of that, you can find a new episode of our podcast, Two Virgins, in your newsletter every Saturday morning.
Teresa Xie is a student at the University of Pennsylvania, and Sam Fleming is a student at Columbia University. The two have been friends since their early days in high school and have always been well-versed and interested in pop-culture. However, as POC, they often felt their voices underrepresented in the pop-culture space, especially regarding intentional culture critiques.
