My hearing dad (who does not know sign language at all) met my deaf friends for the first time on Thanksgiving. Except things didn’t quite go as well. It went from the original plan of multiple deaf friends to just one because of some unexpected events beforehand. How did it turn out in the end?
Here’s an extremely casual random vlog showing my experience trying to get my hearing dad to experience what I do as a deaf person who spends most of her time in the hearing world.
Original plan was to film even a little part of it, but my dad did not want to be filmed at all, so… yeah, haha.
