Queering Judgement: 20 for Queer Tarot

I chose to shoot Judgement, as our generation is under immense pressure with allot of external judgement. Judgement from those who aren't part of my community, those that have access to money, those that have access to family support, those that have access to...

Queering The Magician Queer Tarot Card

Queering The Magician: 1 Queer Tarot Card. I chose the Magician because I think we all have our magical side and it’s not about making things disappear. It’s about making your inner self appear for the rest of the world and letting your light shine.

Queering the Devil- 15: Version 3

Queering the Devil tarot Card- Raven: “I chose the Devil, because it represents my wild self, my world, my wilderness, my primal instinctive nature that knows no limitations no restrictions. I picked it to celebrate myself, to reclaim my physicality as something sacred.” This beautiful card was shot in New Zealand, in Wellington up in the bush, and as part of the shoot we created a ritual celebration to celebrate the Devilishness in us.

Queer Tarot Cards The Chariot Queer Tarot the Chariot Card

Queering The Chariot – 7

Queering The Chariot – 7 I chose the Chariot because I could relate to it in the sense that you need will power, and the desire to want to change your situation and taking the world by its horns. Getting out there and making it happen for yourself.  I did that by becoming a refugee.

Queer Tarot Cards The World Queer Tarot the World Card

Queering the World Tarot Card

Queering the World Tarot Card: Don’t be afraid, fear not, you’re going to go through hell. But you have an inner strength, and inner femininity that keeps you going. That dream of womanhood.”  Sometimes womanhood isn’t what you’re born with, it’s something that you earn, you have to work to.  The World as a card of vulnerability, openness and nudity, and freedom of expression. I’d say “You have so much traveling to do, so much adapting to do, you have so much to work for.  To unveil yourself and show the world your true colours”

Queer Tarot Cards Justice Intersection Queer Tarot the Justice Card

Queering Justice: Intersection

I never really heard anyone saying that to me as a young queer disabled person. I hope my voice can cut through all the negative messages that someone might be hearing about who they are.  You can get proud, and you’re not the one who made you feel ashamed. “You get proud by practicing” – Is a title of a poem by LauraHershey, and for anyone who has been marginalised, it takes practice to get proud

Queering the Tower Queer Tarot Cards the Tower

Queering Tarot: The Tower 16

I chose the Tower, as a way to pull me through a few years of chaos. In terms of discovering my gender, my sexuality and recent Asexuality as well. The message that the Tower brought for me was “Finding clarity and direction through chaos”. The Tower really struck a chord at this moment of my life as a message of hope and direction through a really dark period in one’s life. It also relates to the chaos of experiencing my gender and beginning to understand it more.

Transcription from audio: Each time I pull a set of cards which I’ve done recently this card has come up. This is a significant card for me. I've spent since my mid 20's not wanting to be here. After a mental break earlier this year, you do realise you have a lot more...
Queering the Hermit Tarot Card

Queering the Hermit Tarot Card

Transcription from audio interview: I feel that Queer people are underrepresented in magical realms, and if there is a specific Tarot that speaks to people who are Queer – readings might be a little more accurate. Queerness and magick are aligned for me, and I feel...

Queer Tarot Cards The Hierophant Queer Tarot the Druid

Queering the Hierophant: The Druid 5

Queering the Hierophant: The Druid 5: Queer people look to alternative types of Spirituality for guidance and mentors when the traditional church either does not accept or spurns them Hierophant Druid. From a strong connection to earth, Druidic practices, and the fact that often Queer people look to alternative types of Spirituality for guidance and mentors when the traditional church either does not accept or spurns them. To share this represents to me the wonderful things we can learn from the historic traditions of magick and here specifically druidic practices and create the most fertile soil for our own personal growth.

Telling Queer Stories through Tarot

A queer Tarot photography project, creating 22 Major Arcana cards.

Shooting portraits of queer people, inclusive of all genders, orientations, nationalities and ages in a style that reflects each individual, this project brings to life tarot cards and tells stories of Individuals in our community. Tarot started as a story telling medium, now we will have a way of telling queer stories through tarot too. Starting with just the Major Arcana, this project aims to create community and tell queer stories through tarot.

Each tarot card will inspire a photograph and a short interview telling the story of that person, and explain why they relate, embody or love the card they’ve chosen – what Queer Tarot means to them.
