Featuring body outlaws, endangered cultures, and anti-colonial belief systems, THE NEXT WORLD TAROT envisions a world where justice relies on respect and revolutionary love.

The Fool’s Journey is about smashing systematic oppression, owning their truths, being accountable to the people and places that support them, and taking back a connection to their body that may have been lost through trauma or societal brainwashing.

The NEXT WORLD TAROT is a visual spectacle of both the battle cry and the re-connection between outcasts and their criminalized identities.

This set includes 78 Tarot Cards and an accompanying Tarot Reader (Written and Illustrated by Cristy C. Road).

Inspired by her friends and acquaintances, the deck features images of gay couples, people in wheelchairs, women in hijabs, minorities, the poor and seniors, set against a dystopian landscape.

Cristy C. Road, a Miami-raised, Brooklyn-based, Cuban-American illustrator, writer, and of course, total dreamboat, is no stranger to DIY, punk, queer, zine, and activist communities all over the place.

Cristy C. Road’s “Next World Tarot” Boldly Defines a New Generation of Saints

Courtney Trouble, Autostraddle

Cuban-American and raised in a traditional Catholic family, the preteen Road has a number of identity issues: she does not fit into her cultural mold, she finds salvation in punk rock, and she has a conflicted gender identity.
