What is Brown Girl Tarot?
BGT was started after I (AMJ) started reading for myself as a way to make my spiritual practice more tangible. I took to working with the cards fairly quickly and developed an unexpected passion for this art. I decided to start Brown Girl Tarot when I noticed the very low numbers of decks created by people of color or even featuring brown-skinned folks. Since I first came to tarot by way of women of color I encountered on Twitter, I figured it would be a great idea to bring us all together.
Brown Girl Tarot is a welcoming and affirming community. As such, the terms “girls” and “women” are inclusive, whether trans, femme, butch, gender nonconforming, intersex, cis, questioning, fluid, etc.*
