Finding a tarot deck that completely sings to you can be hard. Finding one that sings to you and is queer at heart is even harder. To help with that, I made you this wee roundup of queer-friendly tarot decks on my radar.
We tell stories to stay awake. We tell stories to communicate. It is how we come to know each other. It is a part of our culture. We may be black, brown, white, queer, undocumented.

“A feminine monster, happy chaos in rainbows and minty lip tar.”
“You can take makeup off or pile it on, and it can mean so much to you and how you see yourself. That’s powerful. That’s very potent. That’s witchwork.”
“Over the next few weeks, I’m gonna guide you through portraits and their stories, and how to get the looks if you so desire. If anyone would get these photos, it’d be you babes, right? My queer family. These are all pictures of us. They always were.”
Autostraddle’s very own Robin Roemer has a new project that’s an old take on new media, and it’s charming as hell.
“To me, it’s always read as “stabbing myself in the eyes with shards of glass,” which come to think of it is a pretty useful emoji.”
I strive for a life in which these emojis are the only ones I ever need.
