Valentine’s day can be heteronormative. Too often celebrating love can be seen as synonymous with celebrating gender norms, ‘traditional’ relationships, and loads of other restrictive ideas of what love should look like. It can also be super commercial.
But that’s not to say it has to be any of those things – if anything, Valentine’s can be a lowkey, annual reminder to tell the people you love that you love them, and celebrate what your love looks like.
It’s also LGBT+ History Month – so to push against the tide of images of straight couples inevitably coming our way, we found the best cards that celebrate queer love.
