GSB Playing Cards
The unique gender and race-neutral playing card
We are very excited to announce our new pride pack edition of GSB Playing Cards! GSB Playing Cards was created with the intention to fight for equality in the sense of gender, race and class. This also means to highlight the importance of gender neutrality.
This is the first card pack that got rid of the standard binary genders of man (King and Jack) and woman (Queen) in the card deck and introduces a new inclusive hierarchy: Gold. Silver. Bronze.
To show our support to the lgtbq+ community and in the light of International Pride Month we have designed a Pride Pack Edition of our playing cards. The Pride Edition is available in poker- and bridgesize cards in our webshop and at Amazon.us. Additionally we will be donating to a good cause in the Netherlands that especially works hard on queer community acceptance.
GSB signifies Gold, Silver and Bronze. The idea is to remove gender hierarchy and race differences from our card decks. Why should the King have a higher position than the Queen? Why should the King, Queen and Jack be white? However, rather than complicating the sex and race inequality debate even more, we decided to remove the gender and race factor as a whole and to introduce a common, universally known ranking system. All the other cards in the deck are the same as usual. This card pack was designed with the passion to fight for equality in gender as well as race. Our goal is for everyone to feel comfortable while playing cards.
