Deafies in Drag

Deaf Coming Out, 2019


Selena Minogue and Casavina are two deaf Latinx drag queens who make up the deaf comedy duo, Deafies in Drag. They met at the only liberal-arts university for the deaf in the world, Gallaudet University, and fell in love with each other. They discovered that they had a lot in common, such as filming, acting, art, and drag. They started posting videos poking fun at their deaf experience but they soon discovered the positive, inclusive impact their work had on the deaf community, and started to use their platform to educate others on the life of the deaf.
