My name is Sage Lovell (sign name “sweet”) and I am the founder of Deaf Spectrum. Let me tell you a bit about us – the idea first came up in about 2013 when we noticed a huge lack of accessible information in sign language. This idea became reality in January 2015 with our YoutTube Channel. One the past three years, we have expanded our services. For example, Grant Writing Services, Workshops (for Deaf, HoH, and Hearing – both in sign language and interpreted spoken English), Accessibility, Sign Language Interpreter Bookings (for large events only), Sign Language Performances, Private One-on-One Tutoring Services, Event Planning

ANNOUNCEMENT: APRIL 25th 2018
Hello everybody! My name is Sage Lovell, and this is my sign name (sweet). I am the founder of Deaf Spectrum and I identify as a Deaf Queer Nonbinary person. I wanted to let you know that it’s National Deaf LGBTQ Awareness Week! Did you notice the sign for LGBTQ? It’s pretty cool right? It’s borrowed from Japan Deaf community. How was it spread out in Toronto, Ontario? A person named Fuyumi came here to interview with Deaf Trans folks and showed this sign to us. We asked her if we could use this sign and she approved. It’s important that the origins of signs are recognized. Have a wonderful week and celebrate the diversity of queer & trans lives.
