Queermark's Holiday Cards to Benefit Homeless LGBTQ+ Youth
For many, the winter holidays represent a time for family and comfort. However, for many LGBTQ+ people, the holidays are anything but.
This is why Queermark Cards is launching the inaugural holiday project where everyone can purchase beautifully designed holiday cards focused on celebrating their “family of choice” while also supporting homeless LGBTQ+ youth.
Donations from this project will cover the cost of the cards and 50% of the proceeds will go to support The Ali Forney Center in NYC, which assists 2000 youth a year with a continuum of services that include over 70,000 meals, health care, and housing.
Let this holiday season be the reason you show support and nurturance to your “family of choice” and honor those who have been left out in the cold.
Your choice of 2 designs. The purple holiday card, blank on the inside, or the "Generic" card, "Missing your face. Missing your voice. So glad you're a part of our family of choice!" on the inside.
What is Queery?
Queery is the combination of two words and one fantastic concept: Queer Theory.
Located in the heart of Westchester, 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 Queer Zen meditation, National Coming Out Day cards, and our Queery Pronoun Challenge. 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.
