Is It OK For Me To Attend Deaf Events?

If there is a public event and you can attend, then it is completely appropriate for you to do so. If there is a private event and you have been invited then you should make every effort to go. Remember this rule: if you are invited, you should attend. The deaf community does not usually extend polite, but insincere, invitations. Deaf people keep track of the hearing people who express an interest in their community. A positive attitude will take you even farther than good signing skills as you meet more and more deaf people and have real conversations outside of the classroom. Find out about the public events in the deaf community and make an effort to attend at least one each month.
