Chella Man Became His Own Representation

. Guest Blogger

My name is Chella Man. I am a 19 year-old, deaf, genderqueer artist.

 

Art is literally a way of survival for me. Without it, I wouldn’t be myself.

 

I think the greatest gift that my body gives me is it’s ability to adapt and it’s ability to understand why I do certain things: why I inject testosterone every single week, why I got top surgery, why I got two Cochlear implants.

 

Society could easily be more inclusive to deaf people by simply thinking about the fact that we exist.

 

I never had you know, a deaf, genderqueer, person of color, young artist. I wanted to be that representation for myself because there’s no major movies out there with someone like that starring. So when I look in the mirror, I see my representation. And that’s valid.

 

For more from Chella Man, you can follow him on InstagramTwitter, and YouTube. Chella Man is wearing our Neutrals Collection 6" Fly boxers in nude X=4.

OUR VOICE IS A COLLECTIVE ONE. WHAT DO YOU THINK?

The Collective Voice

  • Lindy Decker-Heilman

    I applaud Chella Man for pursuing what he wants to do with his future! I am a deaf lesiban with two cochlear implants myself. There are a lot of deaf people dislike implants. They feel it’s not part of their deaf community. It’s our choice to want or not want the implants. I love mine a lot. It opened up a whole new world for me to hear more sounds I have never heard, such as crickets chirping, birds chirping, and sounds of the wind blowing. Chella Man, keep going for your dream as always!!!
