Established in 2010, The Young Folks is a website focused on bolstering and highlighting diverse and fresh talent in entertainment criticism.
Gabrielle Bondi and Luciana Villalba created The Young Folks as an outlet for their own voices, which at the time, they didn’t see reflected in the entertainment reviews and editorials they read. It was also a way to share with their friends (and anyone else who happened to be interested) what they thought of the latest movies they watched, books they read, or songs they couldn’t get out of their heads.
In its first year, The Young Folks’ readership increased, and its followers became interested in writing for the website, helping to cover a range of entertainment and pop culture topics. Within a few years, The Young Folks had a staff of over 30 writers who volunteer articles and reviews weekly. TYF eventually was recognized as a Tomato-approved publication on Rotten Tomatoes.
The main goal of The Young Folks is to be a place that reflects the voices of our generation. We’ve learned that there is not one distinct voice that defines all of us but a multitude that showcases how truly diverse and dynamic we are as a generation. We are all the young folks.
