Deaf Heart Hangout: Queer Identity Development

June 3, 2021 @ 10:00 am 10:30 am CDT

This month we’re celebrating Pride! Did you know that June is Pride month to honor the 1969 Stonewall Inn Riots (also referred to as the Stonewall Uprising or the Stonewall Rebellion)? These Riots were in response to a violent police raid of a Manhattan gay bar called the Stonewall Inn, and are widely considered one of the most important events leading to the gay liberation movement and the ongoing fight for LGBTQIA rights in the United States. One year after the uprising, to mark the anniversary on June 28th, 1970, the first Pride marches took place in New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. 

Coming out isn’t as easy as being “OUT” or “in the closet”, it’s usually a longer and more complicated process. In this video we’ll be exploring the intersection of Deaf Identity development and Queer Identity development. Deaf Heart Hangout is presented in American Sign Language.
