Marsha and Sylvia

a typeface by Feòrag

For years, the Edinburgh Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence have run a “Guess the Pride Flag” quiz at their Pride Tea Dance. I draw the flags and, as a result, have lots of drawings of pride flags on my hard drive. 84 of them, it seems. I’ve also fancied trying to make a colour font for a while and lo!, after splashing out on Fontself Maker, I’ve found the perfect synergy.

The font is named after early activists Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera. Its use is dangerous to transphobes.

The image below gives a sample of some of the characters included in the font:
