It's your partner's birthday and you're looking for the perfect card. But the drugstore selection is looking pretty heteronormative.

The specialty store might have an LGBTQ section... full of smiling white faces.

What's a queer person of color to do?

That's what Otis Richardson wanted to know. So he started his own line of greeting cards called Lavender Pop, creating text and artwork on cards specifically for people like us.

Otis joins us this week to tell us about his work.
