Allow them to experience their journey on their own terms and in their own time. Be engaged and ask questions, but also know they may not know or be ready to share every answer.

Cards for the LGBTQ Community
Your identity is who you are. Wear it proudly, celebrate it with loved ones, and love out loud. During Pride Month and year-round, celebrate equality and inclusivity for all your special moments. At Hallmark, you'll find dozens of greeting cards that capture colorful and inspiring elements of the LGBTQ community in all its shapes and forms.
Regardless of orientation or identity, whether you're in a same-sex relationship or one that transcends labels, we want to help you celebrate love and milestones with creativity and sincerity. Hallmark is proud to be an ally of the LGBTQ community.
Sometimes you're celebrating a big moment, like getting married or starting a family. Hallmark has gay and lesbian wedding cards, including wedding shower cards, cards with two grooms, and cards for two brides. You'll also find the cutest new baby congratulations cards for two daddies and two mommies. Wish your partner, wife or husband a happy anniversary with same-sex anniversary cards.

Maybe someone you know is needs some extra encouragement with coming out or transitioning—we've got you covered for these moments, too. Or make them smile with a lighthearted card that lets them know you're thinking about them.
