Freak Flag Events

We gotta be freaky together.

Honoring our individual freaky bits and flying our individual flags is not enough. For even greater impact, we've got see each others' freak flags, so we can appreciate each other's unique freaky bits. We've got to get together for freak flag parades. Our Freak Flags Gallery is a virtual parade, but I encourage us all to create parades IRL (In Real Life) too. Get together with some other freaks, get some sort of music, and walk, run, pedal, ride, streak, dance, or march those flags around. Fly those flags high and fly them proud!

Will people gawk? Maybe. Will people be surprised? Probably. Will people approve? Who cares! Will people join in? I hope so.

Parades can be planned ahead of time or be spontaneous. You can make your parade part of a larger event, or make it a super secret ninja flashmob event. Whatever suits your fancy. If you're the plan-ahead type and you want to publicize your parade, contact me and I'll put your event details on our Upcoming Events page.

I encourage you to have someone take a video of your parade, and send me a link to it so I can share it on our Freak Flag Blog (or you can post it yourself in the Freak Flag Community) to inspire and empower the other freaks.
