Experiences of Deaf Gay Males in Interpreted Interactions with Medical Professionals
Deaf, gay males represent an intersectional minority group in the United States. Studies suggest that deaf, gay males may have a higher-than-average rate of sexually transmitted diseases and related health issues.
Critically, deaf, gay males may have reduced access to medical information and treatment due to language barriers, a situation amplified by having overlapping deaf and gay identities.
This study gathers interview data from five deaf, gay males about their lived experiences in medical settings; specifically, it explores their experiences with signed language interpreters in medical settings.
The goal of this study is to document the experiences and perspectives of deaf, gay males in medical settings with the ultimate aim of improving interpreting practice for this population.
