Where It Started

Your average card store doesn't have cards to celebrate and commemorate the occasions that matter most to me and my communities. So I set out to change that. My cards, tote bags, and prints are created with LGBTQ+ people and survivors in mind. The Crafty Queer is here to help you celebrate when people you know and love come out, reach transition-related milestones, and progress on their journey to healing. I hope you can find the hope, healing, and affirmation you are looking for.

About the Artist

Hi! I'm Alister, The Crafty Queer (they/them or no pronouns). I am trans nonbinary foster care survivor, artist, and activist. I use my artwork to uplift and affirm queer people, trans people, and others from communities that are often excluded or marginalized.  

I enjoy hand-lettering, illustrating, painting, stick-and-poke tattooing, and smashing the patriarchy.  I live in Albany, NY with my spouse and 2 rescue cats.
