Sikasok × Beirut Pride
Beirut Pride is a collaborative platform that takes a positive stance against hate and discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation.
We launched our collaboration with Beirut Pride shortly after Valentine’s day, highlighting that love is beyond and above all. “الحب أقوى” - “love is stronger”. The font used for this pair was developed by Lebanese designer Ghiya Haidar as the Arabic equivalent of the Gilbert font; a typeface inspired by artist and LGBT activist Gilbert Baker. Baker was known as the creator of the rainbow flag in 1978, as well as many protest banners over his life.
