HOLD IT! Has anyone looked to see if this chick is deaf or not? Because either she is using really outdated signs or is making them up. Most people are no longer using that sign for gay (the G on the chin) because anything done around the jaw is meant to be feminine and many gay individuals were offended by the sign. And I have never seen bi signed like that at all; the B on that side of the chin means “bitch” anyway. I’ve always seen people just spell it. So I’m really suspicious of the accuracy of the rest of this book.

i’m gonna preface this by saying that i’m a (mostly) hearing guy (capd but not deaf or Deaf) with basic-to-intermediate asl skills, so i’m not sure how much my opinion counts for.
my now ex-boyfriend is d/Deaf and is a native asl user. right before i came out to him i asked how he’d sign “gay” and he used the g-tapped-on-chin sign. his father (d/Deaf) used a pulling-on-his-ear sign when it came up once, but his mother (d/Deaf) called him old and used the same g-chin sign. the feminine location never bothered me (seemed more natural than doing it up on the forehead to make it masculine), but then again i’ve only seen the old-man alternative. so maybe it’s a regional thing?

No. I’m not deaf.But my sister is. And I’ve known sign language since before I could speak. And I’ve probably been gay even longer. So is my sister. My mother is trained and certified in ASL, and works with deaf students transitioning into the workforce. I’ve been using the gay, bisexual, and lesbian signs for years. Queer and transgender were new to me, but I did research and found that people do use these signs. Still, the language issues that come with identifying gender and sexuality in spoken English carry over to all languages. Constantly evolving. But everyone is entitled to reject, claim, or re-claim any of these terms when speaking about their own identity. Some older lgbtqia community members completely reject this generation’s acceptance of “queer” because, to them, it was a word that was spat at them between physical and verbal assaults. Identity language will never stop evolving. So please share what you’re comfortable identifying as in ASL. It may resonate with someone else.

ahhh so glad I saw this! Trying to learn ASL for my hearing-impaired teenage sister and also teach broaden her horizons to include LGBT+ people (hard in our tiny Southern town)

That’s great! I feel like knowing sign language allows me to understand my sister the way sisters are supposed to understand each other. Knowing her language is key. It’s important to me that she knows I always value what she has to say. After all, what are dumb jokes, sisterly affection, deep conversations, trivial small talk,  nostalgic walks down memory lane, general chit chat, and classic shit talk with your sis without a language, right? Enjoy learning ASL!

My brother sent me a picture of a few young girls protesting outside of Party City in Harlem, today. They want Princess Tiana back.

Amazing! “Kids don’t see racial differences.” “Tiana is available online only” You go girls!!!

"Representation doesn’t matter."
"Kids don’t see race."
These girls just proved you all wrong.

precious angels!

Q: I saw your photos for the queer coloring book. This was so informative! I'm studying to be an interpreter and I only knew gay and lesbian in ASL. Are you part of the Deaf community? It wasn't clear in the post. Anywyas, have a nice day!
