Telling Queer Stories through Tarot
We are creating a deck of Tarot cards – featuring Queer people, inclusive of all genders, orientations, nationalities and ages- telling their stories. This project aims to create community and tell queer stories through tarot. When the deck is printed you will be able to scan each Queer Tarot card watch the video interview of that individual person telling their story and what Queer Tarot means to them.

Queer Spirituality & Tarot Podcast
Stemming from the Queer Tarot photography project, this podcast talks to the card subjects further about Queerness, their spirituality and spiritual practice. Weather using Tarot daily or their lives and journey since being photographed for a Queer Tarot Card, we look at stories of growth and self care and explore LGBTQIAW+ sexuality, identity, gender expression and attractions. Creating community and space outside of traditional / patriarchal religion for spiritual practice that embraces Queerness in all it’s shades.

Tarot for Collective Healing! This series is meant to be an eclectic one; sometimes we’ll discuss certain cards, sometimes we’ll focus on a spread, sometimes we’ll address hard cards and how the prevent healing and sometimes we might focus on a queer tarot community member or deck who’s doing beautiful work for collective healing. Anything goes so long as it contributes to the healing that marginalised people and communities need.
I left on this Queer Tarot cards photography tour at the end of December, and visited Philadelphia, Chicago, Alberta, Vancouver Island and Salt Spring Island. I did over a dozen more photo shoots along the way, and each one has changed me and taught me so much.

I don’t think this person knew how much these words meant to me. I know I’ve written a little about imposter syndrome before
When I started my journey to create a Queer Tarot Deck, I didn’t know any already existed. Now that I am so far into this project, I have discovered, found and been sent so many links of wonderful, inspiring work that has been created, recently and many years ago. Here I aim to list and honour decks that I love, own, recommend or have simply be told about.
Queer Community Flags & Symbols I’ve designed the back of the Tarot Cards to represent Queer Community Magick & include as many queer community flags & symbols that represent gender & sexuality. These are correct to the best of my knowledge- if any need updating please let me know.
