A Deaf Perspective | Deaf Awareness Month

Video: https://youtu.be/uf5GjvJj5Ys

Hello! This is my last post/video for #DeafAwarenessMonth! But not the last ever, that’s the important thing. I explain a bit about what “A Deaf Perspective” is. If you haven’t seen all of the other ones, playlist here. I have a surprise video that will be released….soon? But it won’t be released on my YouTube. It will be released somewhere else, but I will share that on my Facebook page, if you’re interested in seeing that. I can’t say much about it right now. I hate to be one of those people, but oh well. Onward! I do want to let you know that this won’t be the last video that I make related to deaf-related topics. Of course not, because… I’m deaf, I can’t really stop advocating for my community. So to continue that, I have a series that I’ve been kind of doing for a while anyway, that fits with Deaf Awareness Month. It’s called A Deaf Perspective. Or ADP for short. For ADP, sometimes I’m by myself, sometimes with someone else. I – or we – talk about different topics related to the Deaf community. What I’ve done so far is “Deaf Culture Totally Had A Moment” from the Buzzfeed articles done by Lydia Callis. I pick out what I feel is the most important, and I sign them. I also include the full articles themselves. I’ve also done two collabs. One with Ren Putz, where we talked about ASL sign slang. Signs that don’t have an English translation. We show you a sign then explain what that sign roughly means. Another collab was with Gianna Heaviland. We talked about different kinds of assumptions we get at different periods in our lives. That’s an interesting video to watch. I suggest you watch those videos. I will continue to add to the playlist I linked above as I make anything related to the Deaf community. If you want to see me talk about a topic related to the Deaf community, or even unrelated. It can be something else, it can be queer issues, it can be equality, it can be ANYTHING. Just let me know and I will figure out something! If it’s related to the Deaf community, I will include that in the A Deaf Perspective series. And if it’s not, it’ll just be a regular video. If you’re interested in doing a collab, or working with me on making a video, let me know, I’d be happy to do that. I know it’s a pretty short video today but… This is kind of a closing for Deaf Awareness Month, and thank you all for reading/watching my posts/videos this month. I hope you continue to read/watch my posts/videos from now on. I’m hoping to have a few other “new” videos like traveling, out and about… And not so many sit-down and chat videos. I also have a few plans for artistic style videos, so I’m excited about that. I haven’t really even started filming anything for those. But I have a list of project ideas, and I’ve expanded on them. I just have to actually…do it. Again, thank you for reading/watching, and I’ll see you next time.
