Queer ASL for LGBTQ & Allies: March 20, March 27, and April 3

Come on out and learn sign language! This intro class is for anyone who prefers an inclusive and welcoming space – you don’t have to be LGBTQ+ to attend. Join 2-Spirit Deaf Instructor Sarina Elliott to learn American Sign Language and Deaf culture. This immersion class will be taught entirely in ASL, so be prepared to turn your voice off.

This small-group class uses games and fun activities to get you signing. One of the first things you’ll learn is how to introduce yourself with your name and pronouns in ASL, and how to ask others for their name and pronouns. Topics include fingerspelling, family signs, signs related to gender and sexual orientation, basic grammar, and lots more. All of the topics will be explored through a Deaf Queer perspective, and you will come away with some basic signing skills.

This class is for teens and adults, and will run on Monday evenings from 7pm-8pm on March 20, March 27, and April 3 at the Carleton Place Public Library. Cost is $75 a person. Contact us at lisa@blackbearhealinghome.com or 613-558-3199 (phone or text) to reserve your spot.
