Deaf people have complex,multidimensional, and intersecting identities based on race, class, ethnicity, ability, sexual orientation, religion, as well as other influences. Some Deaf people who have multiple minority identities experience more barriers in education and in the workplace. Ila Parasnis has written a chapter about Deaf and diversity issues in the book, Deaf Epistemologies: Multiple Perspectives on the Acquisition of Knowledge. You can also check out the SAGE Deaf Studies Encyclopedia for more articles on this concept. The Diversity in the Deaf Community InfoGuide is also available for your review.
