Deaf Rainbow UK is our new name!
Following on from our exciting announcement of our new name Deaf Rainbow UK, here’s a quick video from our Chairperson saying thank you and what the next steps are with the new name and volunteering!
Please do note, we will have a new website but it will take time to move there especially as volunteers.
We are on Twitter and Instagram – @deafrainbowuk
SHOUT: TEXT CRISIS SERVICE
Shout is the UK’s first 24/7 text service, free on all major mobile networks, for anyone in crisis anytime, anywhere. All the conversation is done via text.
Text the number 85258 with either the text ‘Pride’, ‘switchboard’, ‘Mermaids’ to start a conversation.
Shout is powered by a team of volunteers, who are at the heart of the service. They take people from crisis to calm every single day.
Everything is anonymous.

Hello and welcome to our website!
This website is where deaf people can visit to find information, guidance and educate themselves on the deaf LGBTIQA+ community in an accessible way. We cover advice, history and articles and more. We are continually adding to the website so the content will always be evolving. If you have anything you’d like to contribute or see, please feel free to contact us at Hello@deaflgbtiqa.org.uk (we will get new email address soon!)
For years the LGBTIQA+ community have endured oppression and harassment. However, the deaf LGBTQA+ minority is in that minority – there is not a lot of accessible information being provided for this community. The Deaf LGBTQ+ UK Facebook group decided to create this website as we wanted to be able to educate the Deaf community on an accessible platform.
We all hope that this website will be a success in managing to raise awareness, educating others and guiding people to the right source of information and support. This entire project is voluntary, so we are currently relying on donations and volunteers to keep the website running – if you are interested in volunteering, see the FAQ page!
We all thank you for your support, and we hope that you will be able to take something away from this website for your own knowledge. Please feel free to share the website with others, and spread the love (and knowledge)!
