My name is Luke Christian, I am 30 years old and I am based in Leeds, U.K.
I often travel up and down the country for my job which is called DEAF IDENTITY and is an online fashion brand raising deaf awareness through clothing and accessories! Most of my time is spent working on my business but I also do content creation and use my social media platforms to speak out on deaf awareness related issues and to also share in depth my experiences on what it is like to be a deaf, gay man.
I am very proud to be a part of SignHealth’s Advisory Group as I am passionate in showing that being deaf sits on a spectrum and that there is no right or wrong way to be deaf. I want to empower other deaf people out there to feel strong within their own deaf identities and to also lead the way in the business field by empowering other deaf people to run their own businesses and to not let what society sees as a ‘negative’ hold them back.
I hope that by using my own lived experiences I am able to channel this into positive change and help SignHealth implement these within their own campaigns moving forward.
