Video Description:

Kriston Pumphrey, a brown/tan skinned deaf biracial male with hair combed to the side and a salt and pepper beard, sits in a chair then begins signing in ASL.

Speech:

When discussing my identity, my deaf identity has always been at the forefront, leading the whole discussion as the main topic of my identity.  

It wasn’t until later that I realized that while, yes, I was deaf, I also had all these other identities that intersected.

They cannot be separated. They are intertwined. I’m a person of color, biracial, half black and half white and gay.

Video Description:

As Kriston fades, a teal circle with lettering overlaid appears: “The More You Know. Deaf Identities are Intersectional.”
