Welcome to NBC OUT: A Letter From the Editor

NBC OUT's Managing Editor, Brooke Sopelsa, welcomes readers and shares the site's mission.
NBC News

Welcome to NBC OUT, NBC’s newest digital destination, where we’ll showcase enterprise reporting, original video and other unique content about and of interest to the LGBTQ community.

If there’s one thing everyone in our community can agree on (and there may just be one thing), it is that we are an extraordinarily diverse group. Our acronym may only include a handful of letters, but the variety within each of them is vast. Keeping this in mind, the NBC OUT team is committed to highlighting content that spans the spectrum - from a profile piece about an intersex millennial to an article about cisgender, black gay men in history, and a multimedia report about a Thai immigrant who started a transgender modeling agency.

In order to fulfill our goal of providing quality journalism for our readers and viewers, while also ensuring our stories reflect our incredibly diverse community, we plan to not only leverage the vast news-gathering resources of NBC News, but to also bring in new voices and fresh perspectives from across the LGBTQ spectrum.

I truly believe it will take a village - or better yet, a community - for NBC OUT to reach its full potential. So if you have a story idea, would like to share your feedback with us or just want to follow our latest stories, connect with us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
