A big list of LGBTQIA+ and/or BIPOC created indie tarot and oracle decks

The world of indie tarot decks is vast and is continuing to see more diversity and inclusion in the decks that are being created. As a reference for ourselves, as well as our community, we have begun to compile a dynamic list of LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC tarot decks, specifically created by people within those communities. In this list, you'll find queer tarot, trans tarot, black tarot, indigenous tarot and many other projects coming from varying intersectionalities of identities. Links are provided to the artists and their indie tarot shop (or crowdfunding campaign when applicable). Indie Tarot carries some but not all of these decks. If we carry it, we also link to our online tarot shop.


The criteria that we have used to curate this list is: 

  • The deck has been created by someone who identifies within the LGBTQIA+ and/or BIPOC communities
  • The deck is currently or will be available (at this time we are not including out of print decks)
  • This list includes indie tarot decks, indie oracle decks and indie lenormand decks

This list is full of beautiful tarot decks. I love so many of the decks on this list.

Each offers something unique. A perspective that is worth listening to. At the same time, it's important to note that I do not and you probably won't resonate or agree with every perspective. 

So what are you hoping for from an indie tarot deck? Are you looking to see yourself represented in the deck? Are you looking to be challenged by other perspectives? Are you looking for an as inclusive as possible deck? Do you want a deck with an activist heart? Something that challenges capitalistic systems? Something that does away with the gender binary? Something that challenges the patriarchy? Something that celebrates black culture? 

You can use this list (and the resources linked at the bottom) as a starting point for your own research. There are decks on this list that do some of those things, but I'm not sure I've yet seen a deck that does it all. 

Without further ado, here's the list.
