Did you hear of the story of deaf model Nyle Di Marco who couldn’t access a subtitled cinema showing of ‘Black Panther’?
I wrote all about it in a blog for Hearing Like Me…
This is one of the reasons why I am campaigning for more subtitled showings in cinemas because there simply aren’t enough. With more and more stories, like the one where ‘Deaf Moviegoers were turned away from a showing of Beauty and the Beast’, it’s not acceptable!
I am currently gathering evidence of subtitled screenings in my local area and then I have a plan of what I’d like to do next!
In the meantime, I would really appreciate it if you could sign my petition and share it with all your friends and family…
In the words of one of my favourite singers, Olly Murs… ‘I won’t give up without a fight..!’
If you’d like to get involved with my campaign, I’d love to hear from you. Please contact me!
