Queermark's Valentine's Cards
to Benefit the TGNCNB Community
Spreading Love In All Its Forms
Queery is launching a Valentine's card to help spread love in all its forms. As kids, we were taught to love everyone; our parents, siblings, family, friends, neighbors & community members. As we grow older, we come to celebrate Valentine's Day with the romantic side of love. The marketing of the holiday and many of its accoutrements are geared towards cisgendered heteronormative romance, which is a limited way to think about love and who we feel love for.
As we move into a new year, let's not forget to spread the full message of love this Valentine's Day. Whether it's to your partner or your friend, your neighbors or your coworkers, folx in your religious community or in your LGBTQ+ community, everyone can use more love in their life. Receiving this card will definitely put a smile on someone's face.
That's why this year for Valentine's Day we encourage you to get Queery's heartfelt and encouraging cards. Send them to all those that you care about and love in all its many forms. Remind folx to be bold, be strong & be fabulous. This is the perfect way to tell the special people in your life that you love and appreciate them, and that you've shared great times together, made wonderful memories, and have a loving bond.
Queery is donating 50% of the profits to The LOFT's TransMission program to assist the TGNCNB community with scholarships to help offset cost of medical, surgical, legal, and/or social transition related expenses which are not otherwise covered by insurance.

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.
