Deaf since the age of 10, Terry Galloway grew up to be one of the funniest performers of her generation. Her new memoir, “Mean Little deaf Queer” recounts some of her life’s most horrific and funny moments.

Listen as we talk with Terry about laughing at your disabilities, why embracing failure in your work leads to success and why Hellen Keller is considered an S&M lesbian icon.

    wow, i am not even finished listening and i had to chime in about terry. what an intense interview. i am on the edge of my seat with my mouth open. this woman is raw! there is no pussy-footing around with her. i feel like i’m getting a completely honest look into the mind and life of a fascinating outsider. what a picture she just painted about the look on the girl’s face right before terry’ spits in her mouth. i feel terry’s deafness has given her to opportunity to achieve a true gift for language and vivid communication. i’ve rarely heard and actually felt words come out and smack me like they do from her mouth. she’s exhilarating to listen to.

    Amazing interview, I actually worked out extra long just so I could keep listening. That is saying a LOT 🙂 I can’t believe the nuances of expression and language she catches — more than most folks, that’s for sure.
