In today's world, it is important to acknowledge the diverse range of identities and experiences that exist within the LGBTQ+ community. However, even within this community, there are specific experiences that are unique to different racial and ethnic groups. For Black members of the LGBTQ+ community, representation in media and products is still limited, which can lead to a feeling of exclusion and invisibility.
One of the biggest challenges that they identify is the lack of options available to Black members of the LGBTQ+ community in the UK when it comes to buying well-designed, relatable greeting cards. When we stop to think about it, this makes sense - mainstream retailers might offer a few generic "LGBTQ+" cards, but they are often not tailored to specific identities or experiences. It's easy to imagine how this would make it difficult for someone who wants to send a card to a loved one that feels truly reflective of their experience.
By creating a collection of Black LGBTQ+ greeting cards, we are offering something that is both beautifully designed and truly representative of a specific group of people. This means that those who purchase these cards can feel confident that they are sending a message that speaks to the experiences of their loved ones in a way that generic cards cannot.
