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 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.
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.
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”
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
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.
