QueerASL/Closing night party for SKIN

May 13 @ 8:00 pm - May 14 @ 12:00 am

We are doing it again! But this time we will be partying in conjunction with the closing night of SKIN.

Have you heard about this new play in town?

Deaf Spotlight is pleased to present its 3rd theatrical production, SKIN, this spring by an emerging playwright, Crystal L.M. Roberts. This play will be on stage for seven performances from May 4 – 7 and 12 – 13, 2017, at the 12th Ave Arts Mainstage in Seattle, Washington. SKIN will be directed by Alexandria Wailes who has over 15 years of acting/directing/ choreographing and a lifetime of dancing.

This story follows four Deaf queer women who are struggling to make sense of violence, sex, love and friendship amidst a changing landscape, Seattle’s Capitol Hill.

Queer ASL huh?
It is just that, a social space for queer and ASL! Past silent immersion events have been hosted at St. John’s Bar and Eatery. There will be random events thoughout the year including the month of PRIDE!

This social is for you! A queer & transgender positive environment with a focus on creating a safer space for folks who want to learn and practice ASL.
Are you hard of hearing? Do you wear hearing aids? Or maybe you are learning sign? Deaf? Deaf/Blind? Interpreters? Let’s get together!

This social has been created with community in mind, come together and celebrate our queerness in sign language! All are welcome!

Stop by for dinner, or stay for dinner. There are bunch of us that want to sign with you. See you soon!
