Deaf Spectrum is going to develop a Queer & Trans Online ASL Dictionary. Instead of being in print, we will make the signs accessible via GIF & video format.
The dictionary is expected to include 200+ signs. The dictionary will be a work in process, depending on how much we fundraise, adding a few words at a time in alphabetical order.
This dictionary will be free for everyone to use after we've reached our fundraising goal.
Right now, we will focus on the signs themselves, not the definitions. In the future, we may add the definitions of the signs.
Here is the link to the working list of signs to be included in the dictionary: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Rp_tnSK9KX_ML3bmRNHQ216MO77DmNyZKd5-t77XOWI/edit?usp=sharing
Again, this is a work in process and feel free to email info@deafspectrum to add signs to the list!
The budget for the videos will be updated after consulting with the Deaf Spectrum's team.
Thank you for your support!
