Homoground is in the process of creating the first ever Feminist Playing Cards, a collaboration of 14 feminist identified artists that “are illustrating a deck of cards that’ll feature different feminist musicians on the face of each card,” explains Lynn Casper, Homoground producer and the leader of the playing card project.

While Homoground is predominately a queer site the artists behind the cards are not necessarily queer identified. “They’re feminist artists making cards of feminist musicians,” says Casper. “Many of these artists are heavily involved in their DIY communities and have contributed immensely to the feminist movement through various outlets including music, zines, and—of course—their artwork.”

“The idea came about when I was thinking about a unique project Homoground could do to raise some money,” says Casper. “We’d been talking about starting a Kickstarter, but felt like raising money for the podcast wasn't very exciting. I was brainstorming and one magic moment while I was taking a shower I came up with the idea of doing a custom deck of cards.”

The initial planning for the project began this past December and within a matter of weeks Casper had all the artists confirmed. “We launched the Kickstarter on January 21st, and we have until March 21st to raise the money.”

There are 15 days remaining to donate. As of today they have just over 232 backers and $7200+ towards their end goal of $12,000. But like all Kickstarter projects Feminist Playing Cards will only be funded if all $12,000 is raised. Casper, who’s in charge of the account says “with these decks, we aim to not only celebrate musicians with feminist values, but to also preserve the history of these musicians in a uniquely creative way.” Musicians to be featured on the cards range from Nina Simone to Robyn.

As for the illustrators, the 14 artists are Emily Henderson, Andrea Rae Georgas, Ramsey Beyer, Lauren Denitzio (of The Measure [sa]), Liz Prince, Marissa Paternoster (of Screaming Females), Clare Brown, Jacki Sullivan (of Monitors), Brandi Lee, Cristy Road (of The Homewreckers), Ginny Maki, Citizen A, Tressa Patten and Kay Kelly.

Since Homoground launched 15 months ago they produced 54 podcasts, created mixtapes “where we invite other blogs, organizations, activists, DJs to create a mix for us,” says Casper (in fact WTGG made a mix of queer DC bands earlier this year). Homoground has also started throwing parties, and booking shows and filming events.
