Hi, I’m Mike De Socio.

I’m an independent journalist based in upstate New York, telling stories about cities, climate change and the LGBTQ+ community.

My path in journalism has taken me through almost every part of the newsroom, where I’ve worked as a photographer, writer, reporter and editor. Currently, I’m writing a book about the fight for LGBTQ+ inclusion in the Boy Scouts of America.

My work has been published in Bloomberg, The Guardian, Fortune, HuffPost, Xtra, YES! Magazine and beyond.
