The Deaf Community creates a wealth of opportunity in its diversity. Deaf culture is distinct and thrives with its own languages – American Sign Language (ASL) and langue des signes quebecoise (LSQ) in Canada. It is something we take pride in, and celebrate.
We are DIVERSE but in the end we all wish the same thing – appreciation for who we are as we are, our languages and the ability to express the fullness of who we are, our ideas, desires, creativity and accomplishments. Our diversity and desire to share it is in fact what we all have in common.
