Social Network for LGBT Deaf People is Bridging Oceans.

Deaf LGBT people, confronting common communication barriers, once found themselves geographically and socially isolated from the broader community. Frankly, it is hard to make new friends when most people at social events don’t understand sign language. As with others, the development of niche social networks on the Internet has removed many of the obstacles of building friendships within and among this previously isolated population. – a community specifically constructed for LGBT Deaf members in the English speaking world (e.g., U.S., U.K., Ireland, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia, and Canada) – is proving to be a source of new friendships and emotional support for people who confront the daily ups and downs of being Deaf.

The social network was deployed by Friend Factory, a niche social networking firm that has constructed and deployed communities for the wheelchair users, bariatric and military communities. By surveying members and examining the issues of those living with deafness, Friend Factory has been able to construct an environment conducive to and supportive of the Deaf LGBT community.

Where Deaf LGBT people were previously restricted to making friends in and about their local communities or within organizations for their advocacy, allows these individuals to span oceans. From the comfort of their homes, it is now easy to build and maintain friendships with people sharing similar life experiences around the world.
