Stonewall 50 Typeface

Stonewall 50 is a typeface commemorating one of the most pivotal moments in the fight for LGBTQI+ rights: the 1969 Stonewall uprising. The typeface was released by Feeld, a dating app open to all genders and sexual identities, as a free download to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Stonewall and Pride.

Inspired by the vernacular, handmade letterforms adorning the placards of the Stonewall protesters, the typeface draws on concepts of personal expression and individuality; it celebrates the beauty and dignity of each human being and the validity of their personal experience of sexuality and gender.

This dynamic typeface comes with three in-built widths and styles, all of which reference the variety of lettering found on Stonewall placards. When used, the font generates a code to randomly select a width and style, resulting in a diverse and arresting arrangement of characters.
