The article discusses the youth-led media projects in Colombia. It explores how oppressed or marginalized groups in Colombia use media to challenge the invisibility of their social and political identities, perspectives and struggles in the media and public discourse. The author said that Colectivo ME JODA and TC are two exceptional youth-led media collectives that are actively working toward a more pluralistic and democratic society. It is said that the passion of the two youth-led media collectives for producing media stems from their commitment to their communities who are either rendered invisible or inaccurately depicted by dominant media.
