Non-queer people aren't the only ones who celebrate big occasions like weddings, births and anniversaries, so why aren't there more cards for queer folks?
A new company is working to change all of that.
The brainchild of co-founders Daniel Malen and Mark Uhre, "Mark It Proud" is currently engaged in a Kickstarter campaign to fund queer-inclusive greeting cards after the duo discovered a lack of options for the queer community. The venture was specifically inspired by Malen's wedding when he received countless generic greeting cards from his guests because they couldn't find any for a same-sex couple.
"The 'Mark It Proud' project is our way of telling generations of past, present and future LGBTQ that it can (and does!) in fact get better," Malen told The Huffington Post. "It is our hope that the next time someone walks down their local greeting card aisle, they see that a wedding, anniversary, Valentine's Day or baby shower card isn't just reserved for those with the title "Mr. & Mrs.'"
