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.
