DocuMentorMe: The Docs
Jan 17, 2020
Over the course of 12 weeks, members from the LGBTQ+ community made 10 short documentaries about issues that impact their communities. They touch on topics such as transgender and nonbinary experiences, employment, homelessness, and other social issues common to the LGBTQ+ community. This was a unique journey for an underrepresented group to use their own voice to empower their community and provide resources.



Teatro Visión has a 30+ year legacy of bringing theater that centers Chicanx/Mexican experiences to the county of Santa Clara. This documentary highlights six members and the impact that Teatro Visión has on their personal lives.


With the increasing rise of technological innovation, growing up in a digital world should be easy as ever, right?



A short film about local resources, highlighting just a couple of existing local services and organizations out of many, but also emphasizing services that are being sought and are needed within our LGBTQ community.



This film looks to examine a tiny South San Jose neighborhood forgotten by many, the beautiful people who reside in it, and their place in a larger uncaring society.



What challenges does our LGBTQ community still face when coming out?



A glimpse/trailer into the hate/discrimination transWomen face every day.



This documentary is on unmasking the masks that society has placed on us and the masks we place on ourselves, due to our past and current situations.



Three people within the queer community share their experiences in the workplace, whether it be good, bad, or outright outrageous.



Focuses on trans/non-binary folk and their experiences, giving insight to not only those who do not understand, but to have something that folks can relate to and can always come back to.



San José is the latest, and often overlooked, community to face the effects of gentrification and high costs of living. Addressing humanity, Solidaridad confronts this reality through the poetry, music, and storytelling of Miguel "Trujillo" Vazquez and Patricia Vazquez, to share a powerful message with the people of San José.
