Welcome to our website!

Thank you for visiting the Deaf Rainbow UK website. Here, we aim to provide information and resources for Deaf LGBTIQA+ people, along with everyone else! As we all know, the LGBTIQA+ community have endured oppression and harassment for years, and still do. Deaf LGBTIQA+ people are an even smaller minority with an added layer of audism; this lead to the Deaf LGBTIQA+ UK Facebook group, which is still running. A whole bunch of Deaf LGBTIQA+ people got together, and created a website, and now here we are! Find out more about the work we have done so far here.

Deafab is Coming to Bristol!

Deaf Rainbow UK and Deafab are excited to work together and announce a mix of workshops, entertainment and the return of Deafab for a weekend of entertaining in Bristol on 10th-12th June! To arrange the tickets, please email

A ticket costs £45.00 (only for Saturday events). The deadline to buy your ticket is 12pm on 27th of May so please buy a ticket beforehand to avoid disappointment!

New Chairperson and Trustees

What an exciting way for Deaf Rainbow UK to end the year 2021, with the announcement of  4 new fantastic trustees (Jamie, Davey, Chris, Tammy) and the appointment of DRUK new Chairperson, Paul Welton! 

With our new trustees, we’ll be furthering Deaf LGBT+ involvement in the mainstream LGBT+ organisations and events, establishing and supporting the needs for Deaf LGBT+ people in the UK, new resources and information relevant to the Deaf LGBT+ community. All this has only been possible by the hard work done by the board and its supporters, and now with the support of its trustees to further our goals for the future. 

Please find out more about each of them on our Committee page.
