Deaf U Updates: We hold a lot of stereotypes when it comes to the special ability of people. Even though we try to make them inclusive, but in the end, we treat them differently and eventually show them sympathy.
Hence, Netflix thought that it is high time to break such stereotypes and make its viewers understand that they are no lesser than us, and therefore, brought to us the new docu-series, Deaf U, we’re a tight-knit group of Deaf and hard of hearing students share their stories and life experiences at Gallaudet University, a university for the deaf and hard of hearing students. This is a great initiative by the OTT platform to share the stories of the minorities and spread their stories that will inspire us. Deaf U is all set to release on October 9, 2020.
The plot of Deaf U:
Deaf U will definitely be a one-step forward of many parallel docuseries and let the others have a chance to see the world through their eyes and a great opportunity to change their perspectives. And the exciting part of the show is that even a special ability journalist is covering their story. The show will unfold their career, relationship, and friendship escapades. The creators aim at showcasing their study as much unscripted as possible.
Producer Nyle DiMarco said, “The point of it all is that deaf people are human. We’re the same as human people, we go through the same as hearing people. I’m excited to finally announce my Netflix series as an executive producer, with you all. I wanted to see the diversity and the layers of the community”
This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act and what’s better than sharing 7 incredible stories of such communities and Netflix said shotgun and did this great job by bringing them to the forefront.
The Gallaudet University’s students present on the show but the main faces are Daequan Taylor, Cheyanna Clearbrook, Renate Rose, and Rodney Buford.
