Mother Nature is a Lesbian


Be Oakley


Gender Fail  -  16 euros



Mother Nature is a Lesbian is a type book of poster and prints. The font was made in response to a protest sign used in the New York Chistopher Street Parade in 1974 , in which a sign displaying the handwritten message “Mother Nature is a Lesbian” inspired a typeface created in response to that act of protest. The font derived from the original sign extends the initial moment of protest by expanding this moment of agency past a singular event. It has become the unofficial font for GenderFail and has been used in various programs and publications.
