FREQ #16: Amber Galloway Gallego: Turning Music into Sign Language

Each month, FREQ will bring you the latest news and updates from Feminist Frequency, as well as interviews with some of the most inspiring women in media, activism, and beyond. This month, we’re talking to Amber Galloway Gallego. An ASL interpreter by trade, her vibrant, impassioned translations of concerts by artists like Kendrick Lamar and The Red Hot Chili Peppers have gone viral more than once, and even earned her a spot in a sign language rap battle with Wiz Khalifa on Jimmy Kimmel Live. She’s translated that visibility into advocacy around the need for qualified ASL interpreters at music events, and equality and accessibility for deaf people in every aspect of life.
