Tarot of the QTPOC

I’m always on the hunt for decks that include people like me, that is queer and people of color (perhaps, *gasp!* even queer people of color).

I once went into a metaphysical store and one of the women who worked there inserted herself into a conversation I was having with a friend. I was discussing a list I was looking to make of tarot decks that had queer and people of color, and she, completely uninvited, remarked that most pagan practitioners are straight and white.

Ha!

Somehow I managed to contain both my laughter and anger and walked away with nothing more than an irritated hum despite my burning desire to tell her about the many ways she was WRONG. Needless to say I purchased nothing in that awful store (trust and believe they didn’t stop with the micro-aggressions there) and I don’t plan on ever returning.

Anyway, I’m going to start posting decks that are inclusive as a record for myself and to positively highlight them in my Tarot of the QTPOC series. I always take recommendations!
