When you're born in America, 
you get a front row seat...."

"White collar conservative flashin' down the street, 
pointing that plastic finger at me, 
they all assume my kind will drop and die, 
but I'm gonna wave my freak flag high."

"We're all dying. We're all in the process of oxidizing. 
Everyone of us is in the process of oxidizing, 
so to sort of interrupt one aspect of that

it's a freak show...."

I didn't realize that I, in all my androgyny, 
was a freak to the rest of this country...."
~IO Tillett Wright

"I admit there's an element of brutality in all my work - 
it's part of the truth about human existence 
I always want to explore - 
but the last thing I'm trying to do 
is put on some kind of freak show, 
inviting people to get off 
on other people's pain and humiliation...."
 ~Tom Solondz


Art by Nibblefest artist, Christine E.S. Code, of CES






"Though designed as a mere convenience, 
clothing sizes establish an unintended norm, 
an ideal from which deviations seem like flaws. 
There's nothing like a trip to the dressing room 
to convince a woman 
- fat, thin, or in between - 
that she's a freak...."
~Virginia Postrel 

Art by Nibblefest artist, Tammy Gulat




"I was definitely the oddball freak show in school..."
~James St. James

"Too much makeup on an older woman 
can really make you look like a freak...."
~Julianne Moore

Art by Nibblefest artist, Leola Goldsmith Walker




"I thought that if you come across as a freak, 
there will be some kind of distance. 
Maybe the distance became excessive. 
I realized that people were afraid of me without knowing me...."
~Thomas Kretschmann
