Huetribe Teams Up With Manchester Pride to Find the Face of its New LBGTQ Card Range

Paige Tucker | 26th July 2017


Want to make someone’s birthday? It’s easy. Buy them a card! Research out today by Huetribe, a multicultural and LGBTQ greeting card line has found that almost half of all British adults – from heterosexual to homosexual to all ethnicities – would rather receive a card on their birthday (48%) than a Facebook message (9%). And, given the choice, men no matter their sexual orientation, would rather a birthday card (40%) than a birthday pint in the pub (27%).

However, when it comes to selecting cards for minority groups, almost three-quarters say there isn’t enough choice. Furthermore, with wedding season in full swing and same-sex marriages more popular than ever before, having been legalised over three years ago, a fifth admit they are still struggling to find cards to suit these occasions.

In fact, the LBGTQ community feel the most underrepresented in the greetings card market, followed closely by the disabled and people of colour.

The founder of Huetribe greeting cards, Tineka Smith says: “It can be hard to find cards which truly represent modern day society – whether you are gay, straight, bisexual, black or white.”

When you walk into a store and see images on greeting cards that look like you or your relationships, it gives you a sense of acceptance that people realise you’re part of our society too.”

With this in mind, Huetribe, has teamed up with Manchester Pride this year to find the face of its new LBGTQ range. From solo entries to friends, couples and families – all are welcome to apply.

As well as becoming the face of Huetribe’s LGBTQ range, which will include a professional photo shoot, the winning entry will also receive a weekend away for friends and family. The ‘Join our Tribe’ competition launches July 24th on Huetribe’s (@huetribedesign) and Manchester Pride’s (@ManchesterPride) Facebook page, as well as the Huetribe website. For more information about Huetribe and how to get involved visit
