    a voguing reality competition web series, exploring the world of ball culture. It premiered on HBO Max on May 27, 2020. The series follows LGBT house members – predominantly from eight houses – as they navigate through nine balls (dancing/voguing/walking events), with US$100,000 prize for the winning house.

    The logo is based on Rainer, with a custom barless A. The show additionally uses a range of other recently released typefaces for the names of the eight houses.

    The contestants belong to eight houses, each of which has a typographic logo set in a different typeface, in all caps. From top to bottom: Lanvin (), Ebony (), Balmain (, identified by Jay), Gorgeous Gucci (), Escada (), West (), St. Laurent (), Ninja (, identified by Jay).
