ASL Interpreter Needed Jun. 24th, 2012 @ 11:49 am
ASL interpreters needed for summer at Camp Little Notch. There is one Deaf staff member and at least two Deaf campers per one week session. We are still seeking interpreter coverage for the three week summer session with the campers, and the 4 day post camp. The dates for the camper sessions and post camp are June 30-July 24th. It would be optimal if someone could come for the entire three weeks, but if you can commit to three days or over please contact us immediately! This would be a perfect opportunity for a senior or recent graduate of an ITP looking for some hands up experience!

The Breakdown

Who: ITP Seniors, recent ITP grads, working precerts, certified interpreters
Where: Camp Little Notch, Fort Ann, NY
What: Check out www.camplittlenotch.org- In summary we are an awesome social justice camp for girls in the Adirondacks with an 80 acre private pond.
When: Any three or more day clump between the dates of June 30th and July 24th 2012
How Much: This is volunteer, BUT you can stay at the camp for free and eat for free. Also, if you are a parent, guess what? We're a camp for girls! If you have a daughter you can bring her and we will lovingly provide childcare.
Contact: Jo Lum jo@friendsofcln.org if you have questions, concerns or want to schedule dates to come.

sign for bi-polar? Aug. 11th, 2011 @ 11:09 pm
 Hey all!

My friend and I are wondering if there's any kind of established sign for bi-polar disorder. Or any other mental illnesses for that matter. [We're in the US, but other sign languages are cool too!]

Thanks for your help!

Introduction! Jul. 26th, 2010 @ 04:46 pm
Hello there! Just following the rules and introducing myself. I'm Cindy, 23, from NYC and queer/genderfluid/female.
I guess you can say I'm supportive of the deaf community as well have admiration towards it too.

Hey all,

I'm Nassira, a hearing queer femme linguist in Chicago (though I grew up in/around Northridge - CSUN all the way!).  I study the structure of ASL and LSQ (Quebec SL), and also how both languages are used to construct/express social identities.

I'm joining the comm because I went to RAD this year (volunteered, actually, since it was in Chicago) and now I really miss the sense of camaraderie we built there.  I'm involved in lots of queer stuff on-campus (including co-leading our trans*/genderqueer/SOFFA group), and a decent amount of Deaf stuff (for example, I'm the TA for first-year ASL, working with a Deaf professor), but nothing else that combines the two.  So I guess I'm going through Deaf queer withdrawal.  ;c)

I'm not sure what else to say; I know a few of you are already friends of mine, so please let me know if I've forgotten to mention something interesting!

If this is not allowed, please feel free to tell me, and I'll delete. My name is Nori, and I'm a 21 year old queer female. I'm trying to get back into ASL after a while, and would like to find a conversation partner/local friend here in the DC Metro area. Let me know if you're interested!

Howdy everybody.

I had no idea there was a GLBT Deaf lj community!!!
I wanted to introduce myself and say hi to everybody... My name is Rory, I'm a female-bodied genderqueer, more on the masculine side of the spectrum... and pansexual/polyamorous. I was born deaf, used Signed English for most of my childhood and use mostly ASL now. I'm not very heavily involved in the Deaf community really, or the Queer community for that matter, I'm a bit of a black sheep I suppose. Anyway, hello! Anybody in Canada here??
» Offensive shirt
Remember the post regarding the "Deaf Girls Never Say No" shirt at CafePress?

I got a letter back from the site - the offending t-shirt has been removed.

: )

So, this isn't entirely related to LGBT issues, but it is related to Deafness.

I was searching Cafepress for some ASL things for my baby and I came across this shirt, which (needless to say) appalled the crap out of me.  I am a survivor of sexual assault and this is just...beyond words.

I wrote to the Content Usage team (cup@cafepress.com) and I would urge you to do the same.  This shirt does nothing short of endorse the rape and sexual assault of Deaf females and is simply unacceptable.

Get mad!  Write!
