WELCOME! WE’RE BUILDING SOMETHING NEW — JOIN US

We are a group of journalists, artists, filmmakers and media leaders who believe in the power of words, images and stories to advance gender and racial justice and equity—and transform the world.

The stakes are high. The COVID pandemic has radically reshaped life for women, and Black and Brown women have been hit hardest—a byproduct, in part, of persistent systemic racism and misogyny. Feminism, a true intersectional feminism, has never been more urgent or necessary.

At The Meteor, energized by the vision and action we see and feel around us, we are building a new home for feminist work. We produce live events, films, audio content and more, and while we will launch officially in 2021, you can see some of our early work here. Our goals are twofold: First, to stand for the equality and freedom of people everywhere, especially through the work of BIPOC, LGBTQ folks and all groups traditionally underrepresented in media. (We include work by men and non-binary people, too—not all feminists are women, and certainly not all women are feminists.) Second, to amplify the important creative work already being done—by people who are fighting injustice with every tool available, from Instagram videos to long-form journalism.

We’re also inspired by trailblazers of the past, in our own lives and the world. Our name takes its cue from Audre Lorde’s beautiful line about going out like “a fucking meteor.” Perhaps every human alive has, at some point, believed that they are living at a unique moment in history, but this is our collective moment. Let’s light up the sky together.

I want to live the rest of my life, however long or short, with as much sweetness as I can decently manage, loving all the people I love, and doing as much as I can of the work I still have to do. I am going to write fire until it comes out of my ears, my eyes, my noseholes--everywhere. Until it's every breath I breathe. I'm going to go out like a fucking meteor!
