Qowboy (pronounced "cow-boy") is a decorative typeface created to celebrate the spectrum of queer culture, gender identity, and how sexuality can be left up for interpretation. The concept was inspired by a cowboy-themed gay bar in Dallas where Texans performed choreographed line dances—the juxtaposition between the traditional cowboy stereotype and the effeminate men dancing was worth noting. 
The all-caps, sharp corners, and smooth curves read as a classic Western, cowboy-esque typeface but upon further inspection, the scalloped caps and dramatic proportions play on a combination of masculine and feminine traits.
