Friday Things is a new media brand for millennial and Gen Z women that launched in January 2020. It provides its audience with intersectional cultural analysis on topics including entertainment, celebrity, politics, technology, fashion, food and internet culture—and situates those pop culture happenings in a greater context that includes issues of race, gender, ability, class, sexuality, etc.
Friday’s mission is to use entertainment journalism to spark conversations about deeper issues and provide racialized and otherwise ‘marginalized’ readers with content that centres them. Our goal is to evolve into a full-fledged media brand that can give equity-seeking groups a place to share their own perspectives and insights.

- Weekly newsletter - free, deploys on Friday mornings
- Bi-weekly newsletter - for paid members, usually a Q&A with a pop culture figure doing interesting work (for example, an academic who studies celebrity crushes, a journalist breaking boundaries in sports journalism, a video game designer experimenting with what a game even is)
- Merchandise - we just dropped our first merch collection (a sweatshirt, long-sleeved tee, short-sleeved tee and tote bag)
