Stephen Torrence is creating music videos in sign language (ASL)
24

patrons

$117
per video
As of September 2014, I am no longer producing new content.

After a short time here on Patreon, the Deaf community raised concerns about the cultural impact of my videos. I realized thanks to them that what I had been doing was wrong, so I ceased songsigning.

Read more about how I came to this decision

I'm hearing, as are my parents and all of my relatives. I got interested in American Sign Language through a high school friend whose mother became an ASL Interpreter. I minored in ASL at Texas Tech and started making videos in class. One day in 2009 PopEater promoted me and I went viral. I took a break from creating new videos for a few years, then resumed after a 2014 concert in Poland. When controversy arose, I examined my own privileges and changed my mind.

I'm still active in other areas. Follow me on Twitter if you're curious.

Cheers!  ^_^
