Deaf Awareness Month 2020

Hello, I’m Rogan and welcome! September is here again, and that means it’s Deaf Awareness Month. This is a month where we put focus on promoting more awareness about different aspects of the deaf community. It might be general, it might be more specific about our culture, sign language, issues that impact our community, andContinue reading “Deaf Awareness Month 2020”

Gender and Animated Characters | Onward (2020)

Today, I’d like to talk about gender and how it’s portrayed in movies or TV shows. More specifically, animated things. I decided to make this video because I went to see Onward in the theaters with OC before all of this happened. If you weren’t aware, there is a queer character in this movie. AContinue reading “Gender and Animated Characters | Onward (2020)”

Sign for Transgender | Response

Hello, and welcome back. Today, I wanted to take a moment and talk about a specific sign – the one for transgender.

I decided I’d make a video because it’s important to me that this informationContinue reading “Sign for Transgender | Response”

ASL Grammar and the Deaf Community

Hello and welcome. Today I want to discuss grammar in the deaf community. This topic came up because I got an email through my website. I will paraphrase the email below, just the main point. I’m a beginner ASL student. When I watch your videos, it seems to me that your signing typically follows EnglishContinue reading “ASL Grammar and the Deaf Community”

Religion and the Deaf Community

*sighs* This is going to be interesting. Hello, I’m Rogan and welcome. Today, as you probably already know from the title, I want to talk a little bit about the religious community and the deaf community. Their…slightly strained relationship over time. I’m not going back to discuss about monks and their sign language and– ThisContinue reading “Religion and the Deaf Community”

End of Deaf Awareness Month

Video: Today’s a short post! I just wanted to close out Deaf Awareness Month, and it’s not Deaf Awareness Month if you don’t mention captions somehow. But because a lot of other people have already made really great videos, I’m not going to make my own. I will just link them. Rikki has a couple.Continue reading “End of Deaf Awareness Month”
