LGBTQ+ Students–Share Your Story

Dear Student,

We're sending you this email because you described your orientation as LGBTQ+ on your college application, and we thought you might be interested in this project: The CAN/DID Inclusion Series for 2021-2022 will include new releases focusing on the experiences and perspectives of De Anza's diverse LGBTQ+ community.

LGBTQ+ students and employees are invited to participate by telling your stories about finding happiness, facing adversity or any experience you'd like to share in a video or audio interview – or, if you prefer, you may contribute anonymously by submitting a work of your own poetry, short prose or visual art that we can photograph and post on the CAN/DID website. We will honor your privacy.

Please email to ask about getting involved.

CAN/DID is an ongoing multimedia series that explores equity and social justice issues – with the goal of building community – by drawing on the experience and knowledge of De Anza students, faculty members and classified professionals.

Previous CAN/DID topics included Black Lives Matter, countering anti-Asian racism and De Anza's unique Intercultural Studies program. Additional installments this year will address topics of importance to the Latinx community, among others. Visit to see all of the previous installments in the series, as well as resources for support and further exploration.

Best wishes, 
De Anza College
