Listen and read stories from various people that are living and celebrating the d/Deaf and Hard of Hearing lifestyle, whilst raising their voices……and my own voice, Ahmed Khalifa.
Hear Me Out [CC] is a place to celebrate the #DeafCulture and the individual identities by sharing stories about other people and my own personal journey. This site exists to help educate the hearing world as well as helping those in the d/Deaf world and the “inbetweeners”.
