What is the delivery date of the deck?
Scheduled delivery date has been November 2016 from the beginning of the project. We are on schedule to meet that date.
This is a Queer Southern tarot deck? Is every artist on the project Queer and Southern?
The artists and contributors on this project come from a variety of backgrounds. Each artist either has ties with the South, or is from the South, or identifies as queer (or somewhere along the LGBTQ spectrum) or holds a combination of those identities.
Queer and Southern voices are often underrepresented and misrepresented. This deck is a particular collection of voices from these groups. The collaboration of these voices will create a beautiful, relatable, thoughtful, deck that has a lot of intention and integrity, and that also amplifies queer and southern voices.
Can I illustrate a card?
We have all the artists we need working on the tarot project now. We hope to be doing future projects that focus on queer and Southern voices. If you’re interested, submit some work samples here.
Are there other ways that I can contribute?
It’s going to take a lot of work to reach our goal. High quality printing in the United States is expensive. We are also providing artists with modest compensation for each illustration because we value their work, and we want to make it easier for them to participate.
As we prepare to launch the kickstarter campaign and after it launches we would love help with setting up a fundraising event (or a handful of them, maybe even in different places).
We would also love help networking with relevant blogs, publications and other entities who can help us get the word out about the project. Know somebody at Autostraddle? Have ideas for publications we should get in touch with? Know somebody we should meet to get the word out even better? Let us know.
Have other questions?
Get in touch. We’ll do our best to get them answered.
