Deaf LGBTIQ features the lives of deaf LGBTIQ people in Malaysia who have many stories to tell but rarely do because of communication and language barriers. The lives of deaf LGBTIQ people are never easy; not everyone accepts their deafness and LGBTIQ identity.
Seven persons are coming forward to share their memories of how people have reacted towards their identity as LGBTIQ people. They relive these memories by acting in the film, and the scenes from these memories are accompanied by a signed poetry (written in English). The poetry takes inspiration from all of the memories combined together, and all seven of them perform the poetry in Malaysian Sign Language (BIM).
There will be no sound in the film as that is how deaf people truly live in the world. And since they understand the feeling of being left behind, English subtitles will be provided.
