Deaf Awareness Week 2019: The Highlights

DAW 2019 Blog Banner

Hi everyone!

AND THE BIGGEST WEEK OF THE YEAR is over… sadly!

What a week it’s been though! Throughout this Deaf Awareness Week, we’ve seen many incredible photos, videos and lots of people sharing their stories.

I thought it would be a nice tribute to sum up the highlights in this blog!

Myself and my wonderful, talented friend @abiloubeauty did a little project for #deafawarenessweek which involved whacking out our brightest clothes, the use of confetti, balloons, silly string, party poppers and … BUBBLES! Abi then created this amazing rainbow 🌈 look which I modelled!

#DEAFAWARENESSWEEK 💚 From today 6th May through to Saturday 12th May, I will be focusing on all things #Deaf related! 💚 Now, in fairness I do try and do as much Deaf Awareness as it is, but with a whole week dedicated to it here in the U.K. it’s extra important for me to highlight and share with you some tips when it comes to being around Deaf people and get to understand a little more about what it’s like to be deaf! 💚 I’ve been a @phonak #hEARo now for a year and I’m so pleased and thrilled to continue on this relationship with them! (I had this custom made t shirt by @electriceyeapparel and thought it came out great wouldn’t you say!?) Let me know if you have any questions regarding Deafness and I will try my best to answer them! 💚💚💚 ————- http://mrlukechristian.com ✨⚡️💫 • • • • • – [x] #mrlukechristian #malegrooming #lifestyle #lifestylebloggers #gaylondon #malestyle #maleblogger #fbloggers #lbloggers #beautybloggers #leedsbloggers #style #streetstyle #gayleeds #gay #leeds #bbloggers #manchester #manchesterbloggers #beauty #gayfashion #electriceyeapparel
