Deafheads are hearing impaired hardcore Grateful Dead fans that started showing up to concerts in the ’80s. They would use inflated balloons to feel the vibrations of the songs. Today, they have a Deafhead’s sections with ASL interpreters for the songs and large video screens so that the concert-goers can read the lips of the performers on stage.
Going out of our way to let others feel welcome opens so many doors of possibility that enrich everyone’s lives. Connecting to humans makes us more human.
