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