Nyle DiMarco, a 2013 graduate of Gallaudet University, will hold the gathering at Red Rocks (1348 H St. NE) at 6:30 p.m.

“It is inspiring being the first deaf participant on ANTM, knowing I am making a difference by reaching out and educating others about our deaf culture and teaching sign language to other cast members,” DiMarco said in a statement released by Gallaudet.

Created by supermodel Tyra Banks in 2003, America’s Next Top Model will start its 22nd season at 8 p.m. on The CW.

    Too bad it was prior to school starting! I wish he could visit and inspire our Gally Deaf and hoh students. He shows Deaf are perfectly able to do anything hearing can do…and look better on camera.
