Celebrating LGBTQ+

At Card Factory, we strive to offer something for everyone, so that whoever you are there'll be a perfect card for you... and that includes LGBTQ+ people.

As part of our ongoing ambition to be as inclusive as possible, we're celebrating Pride 2022 by showcasing work by and for this community.

We are championing several talented LGBTQ+ Creatives – including writers, illustrators and photographers. Plus, we've also introduced some new card sends – so that we can all truly take Pride in celebrating everyone's life moments!

Cards from Jonathan Wray

Being Proud of Pride's History

Card Factory is celebrating Pride, while still acknowledging its historic roots – which is particularly important to non-binary Creative Jordan Wray: "To me, Pride means everybody – whatever their gender or sexual orientation – coming together to celebrate their differences... but to also understand the true origin of Pride."

The cute characters and bright colours of Jordan's Pride cards come with a snippet of Pride's history on the reverse. Jordan continues: "Pride began with the Stonewall Riots of the late 60's. It was more of a protest for LGBTQ+ liberation and acceptance – and we shouldn't forget this."

Spotlighting Card Factory Creatives

Card Factory has always championed its LGBTQ+ Creatives – including Editor Peter Fox, who spent several years helping create cards for this demographic. He says: "As a gay man, I know how hard it's always been to find a card that represents you. So I keep trying to find new ways to connect with LGBTQ+ people."

Peter has helped create a range of cards to celebrate Pride 2022. He says: "I've always felt that being your authentic self is a political statement and that's what these cards are about. Celebrate your difference, while standing together – then we can change the world!"
