So. Have you heard the news?
Let’s all jump in the air and shout ‘WOO-HOO’ because everybody’s favourite queer-activist punk illustrator cartoonist zinester CRISTY C ROAD is making a tarot deck. In collaboration with none other than radical poet, writer and organiser MICHELLE TEA.
I’ve been following this project for almost a year hoping for a full-length interview but the truth is, Cristy is *ridiculously* busy doing grad school, the tarot deck, being an awesome activist and hell, being a freelance artist trying to get by in this world, so that gem of an article will have to come when it comes.

You should also check out this picture of radical tarot reader Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha which, of course, Cristy created for Leah’s forthcoming autobiography. Here’s an *incredible* interview with Leah about tarot, intersectionality, activism and radical self-care.
I’m a 30-something writer, artist, tarot reader, and perpetual explorer of the space between thought, feeling, and action.
I believe that spirituality and ritual are for everybody. I’m about the journey, in all of its messy, non-linear, chaotic iterations. I am excited by anticapitalist business and living with my whole entire self present. I use tarot cards to bring forth hidden truth, and ritual to affirm my commitment, over and over, to my ever-shifting path.
