Saw this picture shared on Tumblr in the middle of the night (because what else would I be doing at 3 a.m.?) with the caption “at least we queers have some representation for Christmas, if inadvertent.” Of course I had to track this holiday item down. And buy it. And also locate all the other gay cardinal couples for sale.
I started hunting on Amazon and discovered that many (if not most) cardinal loving pairs have two boys, not a boy and a girl. Like the Cardinals and Christmas Holly Snow Water Globe
And also “Cardinals on Branch Decorative Night Light“
Also this “Solar Powered Hand-Painted Cardinals Orb Light” which I’m kind of thinking I also need to own because I have no idea what it’s for.
Then there’s this “Christmas Snow Globes Lantern with Music” which not only lights up but probably is playing the worst Christmas music on repeat
Flameless Candles, Cardinal Theme, (Set of 3). Flameless? I don’t think so.
Oh, look, a pair of heterosexual cardinals. You don’t see many of those around. Cardinal Pair Wireworks Garden Chime
Okay I guess there are a couple of those kind. Resin Cardinal Pair on Tree Branch Figurine
Another Christmas Snow Globes Lantern with Music. I especially love the musical notes emanating from it.
Maybe polyamorous gay cardinals are your scene. Here to help. (Popular at the Vatican?)
Cardinal couples with birch trees are a theme. Handmade Ornament with Cardinals
Not a couple, but a flag of Mama Kitty with a bird she would totally eat, which is hilarious. Winter Cat Garden Flag
If you want to personalize your gay cardinals, you can. (Someone should talk to Jackson and Emily, though.)
The third cardinal in this throuple might have some complaints. (Acrylic Ornament Engaged Custom Couple’s Name Cardinal is Personalized)
Did I post this one already? I’ve lost track. (Decorative Christmas Lantern with Cardinal and Branch)
Of course you need gay cardinal greeting cards. You are getting these cards from us in the mail.
Finally found the item from the original photo over on Walmart. Totally bought this.
I’ve now made certain I will never see anything but gay cardinal advertisements in my social media timeline. (and so will you, probably.)
Doing some Christmas baking? Do it with your gay cardinal friends.
I don’t know what a ‘diamond painting kit‘ is but it’s representation, at least.
Here’s that music snow globe lantern in red
Festive v-neck Gay Cardinals top you can wear. With Sequin accents!
I keep expecting to run out of examples, but here we are.
At the gay bar – lots of boy cardinals, not a girl in sight.
Maybe you want to send different Christmas cards than I just bought
There’s a distinct lack of lesbian bird representation in holiday decor, though. Maybe I can fix that.
