Deafness as a superpower: living with hearing loss, featuring Kaye Adams and Tasha Ghouri
This episode delves into the reality of hearing loss and deafness with Loose Women’s Kaye Adams and Love Island’s Tasha Ghouri. Kaye was recently told she would need hearing aids in both ears after gradually losing her hearing, while Tasha has been deaf since birth and has a cochlear implant in her right ear. Here, they chat with Vogue about their specific diagnoses, the impact it has had on their lives, how they have overcome any stigma, and
how talking about their experiences has helped both themselves and the community. This episode was live-signed by a qualified British Sign Language interpreter during recording with the video available to watch on the Boots YouTube channel, boots.com and bootshearingcare.com.
