Every story has a beginning
Amidst swirling conversations about our childhood, parents, partners, and struggles, a group of friends were inspired to surface the real, amazing, and untold stories of Asian Americans. Slant'd encourages self-discovery through creative storytelling, as told by a diverse generation just trying to answer the question, "Who am I?" By flipping a stereotype on its head, Slant'd aims to redefine what it means to be Asian American.
Slant’d aims to cultivates cultural empathy among people of different races, perspectives, and experiences, so together, we can celebrate the diversity that makes us all beautifully—and unequivocally—human.
Who we are
Slant’d is a media company that celebrates Asian American identity through personal storytelling. By empowering real people to share real stories, Slant’d provides a refreshing take on the Asian American narrative and sparks an intersectional dialogue that breaks boundaries between assumption and reality.
Slant’d is currently completely volunteer-run. The founding team is made up of a group of #badasians from different upbringings, but who are all connected by a shared desire to uncover the complexity of Asian American identity through creative storytelling.
