It's the Tarot de Marseille, but gay!
Centuries older than the now-popular Rider-Waite-Smith, the Tarot de Marseille (TdM) pattern reigned supreme in the tarot decks of Europe for hundreds of years and became the basis for the rise of esoteric tarot in the 18th and 19th centuries. Most of the divinatory card meanings we know and use today originated in the designs of this vastly important historical deck.
But as society and human beings evolve, so does tarot, and it's high time the TdM got a fresh, modern, and significantly queerer upgrade!
The Gay Marseille (which rhymes if you (mis)pronounce it the English way: Mar-say) takes that classic TdM pattern and style and gleefully transgresses and transforms it. With trans Emperors and gender non-conforming Empresses, punks and polycules and furries and anarchists, the Gay Marseille is a cheeky deck for a gayer---and, yes, happier---world.
