Cute, gay, sign language interpreter - what's not to like?

Young New Yorker Michael makes good use of his talents by reinterpreting pop videos in his own style - humourous, clever, photogenic and sexy, educational even. He's a sign language interpreter and not deaf himself, but he certainly tries hard to engage with his target group (and others) in a very original way:

Britney Spears' song "womanizer" in sign language

- he doesn't just do videos of sign-language, he also has messages to put across, such as this clever spoof GAYS SHOULD NOT MARRY! which he voices with sub-titles for the hard of hearing. His YouTube video channel is here and is well worth a visit; I've just subscribed.
