Deaf Awareness Derby!

In honor of Deaf Awareness Derby¬†at our bout tomorrow (the Deaf community of Texas is invited to experience a full-access night of full-contact roller derby, as six interpreters will be on hand to capture the action blow by blow and the former Miss Deaf America Ambassador will be in attendance to start the second bout!), we have our very own Ariane “Dark Pistol” Leverett teaching us how to sign our home team chants! Check it out below and study up for tomorrow! Thank you Pistol!!

    I had a great time, and so did my friends! Thanks Dark Pistol for coordinating the interpreters and teaching the teams the signs! It was a thrill to see them all sign and to see how many Deaf people came out to the Texas RollerGirls derby for the first time!

    cheers,
