Disabled And Here

Deaf joy

A Deaf Black man smiles and signs “like” in American Sign Language while holding a “Deaf joy” print. The man is wearing glasses and denim overalls and has a black and white beard, septum piercing, and hair pulled back by a bandana. The background features a vibrant mural with a Black woman’s face in close-up.
