For ages I was stumped as to what to do for the back of my Tarot Cards. I wanted it to be something really resonated with the whole project. It needed to be simple enough to not overwhelm either, as my plan is to embed a QR code on the back – like this example which will then direct you to the Video of the person in that card sharing their story!
Very soon I plan to start editing all the Queer Tarot Card videos, and adding a little extra footage of myself telling the story of where/ how I met that person and maybe where we shot the card, and what my experience of creating it together was, as I think it adds a wonderful amount of context and depth to the dynamic of the card story. I like calling them stories instead of interpretations… Anyone can make up or re-write a tarot interpretation, we’ve been doing it for years. A story is unique to that person while simultaneously being something we are drawn to connect to and resonate with ourselves.
I’ve designed the back of the Queer Tarot Cards to include as many of the queer community flags I could find and verify (still not 100% sure on all of them) and symbols that represent gender, and sexuality. Here is a list of what I’ve used, which is correct to the best of my knowledge. Please let me know if any corrections are required.
