[Video Description: There is a dark blue background. On the left of the screen, taking up 2/3 of the screen, is the 'Carnival’ video. On the right is a video of Elizabeth Morris, a Deaf woman, in front of a white background with some speckles. Elizabeth is a white woman with blue eyes. She has long and blonde hair. She is wearing a black top with a black jacket. She is translating in American Sign Language.. The 'Carnival’ video starts with a title card featuring a dark blue background. At the top is The Disability Collective logo. To the left is the No Body Left Behind graphic. Beside that are the words "Carnival by Liggera Edmonds-Allen". Underneath is "thedisabilitycollective.com". All text is in white. This fades into a video featuring animated images of a carnival, with rides moving and people walking around. This then fades into a video of Liggera, a young trans person with short brown hair in front of a white backdrop. After they finish speaking, this faces into the end card, featuring the dark blue background from before, the No Body Behind Logo in the middle, with the TDC logo on top, and "thedisabilitycollective.com" at the bottom]
