National Coming Out Day is October 11, 2021!
Based on the Riddle Scale, "acceptance" of LGBTQ+ people, which is what many organizations and people have rightfully fought for, is still considered at the homophobic level. Looking at the positive levels of attitude towards LGBTQ+ people in the Riddle Scale, we can see that one can offer support, admiration, appreciation and nurturance.
Get your "Thank You For Coming Out Cards" to show support, admiration, appreciation and nurturance to folx in the LGBTQ+ community.
Queermark Cards is excited to be raising awareness and funds for The LOFT LGBTQ+ Community Center's TransMission scholarship program. Scholarships are available to applicants who identify within the trans & non-binary communities to offset medical, surgical, legal, and/or social transition related expenses which are not otherwise covered by insurance. These scholarships are "microgrants" meant to offset costs related to therapy, hormones, gender-affirming clothing/living expenses, etc, and will not cover the complete cost of most surgical procedures.
Applications can be found on the LOFT's website and are open from September 1 - October 10, 2021.
Queery will donate 50% percent of proceeds from the purchase of our Thank You For Coming Out cards to TransMission to help increase the scholarships that are to be given. Please click here to purchase your cards or click here to donate to the TransMission scholarship fund.
What is Queery?
Queery is the combination of two words and one fantastic concept: Queer Theory.
Our mission is to present queer theories to the general public in accessible, appealing and fun ways.
Our art-based violence prevention educational programs use creative arts and social media to bring to life projects like:
Sticks and Stones: Reclaiming Names that Were Used to Hurt Us
We also use posters, t-shirts, and our very own card game, Just Love, to help make complex queer concepts more manageable to understand and openly discuss.
Our vision is to live in a world where people continue to ask questions in order to live more freely and be their truest self.
We invite you to look around, read our thought-provoking blogs, purchase one of our beautiful, fun and conversation-starting products, and to keep asking questions.
Sticks and Stones
Our first project "Sticks and Stones: Reclaiming Names That Were Used to Hurt Us" takes a closer look at the impact of various derogatory terms used within and against LGBT communities to stimulate discussion about the dangers of heteronormative values.
25 rebuses (16" x 20" visual puzzles) and many printed personal stories are available for display at LGBTQ programs, high school, and college settings. A suggested lesson plan is provided for the facilitator, program manager, teacher or professor.
For more information, or to schedule a workshop, please contact James Young, Program Director.
