I have a question for the deaf members of the community. I am very interested in going to some of the deaf events in my area but i am SUPER scared. I dont want to look like a tourist in a foriegn land, but i know for certain i will. My question is, for those of you that frequent these events, what is some advice you have for hearing guests learning sign language? Are there are huge no-nos? Anything i should bring or prepare for? Ive already been told pen and paper is a must, which i get. Anything else? I dont want to intrude, do people get annoyed when a hearing person crashes the party? Are there certain events i should start out with as opposed to others? Would it be ok to bring a friend, or a better idea to go alone? Some of the events in my area are bingo, coffee, pizza parties, and juice bar meet and greets. Any advice you have helps!
