Teazled.com: Cards for the LGBT Community
Teazled.com: Cards for the LGBT Community

Listen
AIR DATE: August 25, 2011

Dina Proto and her partner got tired of searching stores for cards that suited two lesbians.  She says the LGBT-themed cards she found were often crass and sexual.  Her daughter often had to add an "s" to the "Mom" in her Mother's Day cards.  So she and Dina Poist-Proto founded Teazled.com.  It offers cards on everything from coming out, to commitment ceremonies, to transgender sex changes.  What types of cards do they have?  Can they find a market?  And what do their cards say about America's changing families?
