Refinery29 media bias rating is Left.
Refinery29 is primarily a lifestyle, culture, and fashion publication for young adult women, but does occasionally post news. A July 2020 independent review by two AllSides staffers found a clear Left bias, with the website frequently championing typically left-wing issues such as transgenderism, Black Lives Matter, gender equality, and posts favorable to leftist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
