The Queer Tarot Project is a multi-media project, telling stories of the queer community through Tarot. When rejected by traditional religion, the queer community has often turned to Tarot for guidance, connection, self-discovery and or spiritual belonging.
This project aims to de-mystify and bring Tarot back to its story telling roots, and remove the white, patriarchal and religious overtones commonly seen in traditional Tarot decks. These cards are from our new queer Tarot deck, for and by the queer community, representing our gender and sexual identities; telling our stories through Tarot archetypes.
This exhibition shares multi-media photography and video, a silent auction of prints to support a community cause represented by the archetype of each card. Sharing the journey of creating a queer Tarot deck with video card interpretations linked to the cards via invisible QR code and the making of a short film or documentary for a future Queer Film Festival focusing on telling queer stories about connection with themselves and others through Tarot. Excerpts from the future documentary will be shown at the exhibition and queer Tarot readings will also be available.
Florence, the photographer behind the vision of the Queer Tarot Cards, is a geeky queer witch hailing from New Zealand, now living in Melbourne. A creative writer and self-employed web developer, she runs a site called CreateMagick.com. Her work brings self-love and positive queer politic together, telling personal stories about manifesting magick, freedom and creativity.
