a "Queercentric" Greeting Card Project:
Just in Time for National Coming Out Day (10/11/20)
Queery's 2020 project to assist folx in celebrating and nurturing those in the LGBTQ+ and allied communities lead to creating Queermark, a “queercentric” greeting card project.
Launching on October 11th, National Coming Out Day, our first official Queermark card is the "Thank You for Coming Out!" card with our own famous "Sticks & Stones" font complete with the colors from the Progress Flag. For those unfamiliar with the Progress Flag, it includes the colors of the Rainbow Flag, the colors of the Transgender Flag, and brown and black to represent persons of color.
The purpose of this first card is to encourage people to support and appreciate those who come out to them with a concrete and powerful message: thank you for sharing this important part of your life with me.
Please note that if someone comes out to you, they might not be out to everyone. You may want to give them this card in private and have a conversation with them about how they feel about receiving and keeping this card.
To support this project, visit our GoFundMe page, get yourself a pack of ten beautifully designed cards and give them to your loved ones who have come out to you.

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.
For more information, or to schedule a workshop, please contact James Young, Program Director.
