The Freak Pride flag.

Freak Pride is a term used to describe anyone who has modified their bodies in some way, shape, or form and thus are seen as 'freaks' amongst society.

Depending on who you ask, this may also include those with biologically born traits that are seen as 'unnatural,' such as disabilities, physical disorders, rare physical traits, intersex, and similar. It is important to note, however, that this term is usually just for those who modified their bodies, and not for born traits.

This term is not to be used unless the individual consents to its use, as the word 'freak' is often used in a disrepectful manner to those included under freak pride. This term was specifically made to be reclaiming the word 'freak' being used on those who modify their bodies, or have 'unnatural' bodies.

While this term is not LGBTQ+ on its own, it does include many LGBTQ+ identities and traits, and thus can overlap with the queer umbrella. This term includes, but is not limited to...

  • Those who get tattoos, typically covering large spaces of their bodies.
  • Those who get piercings, typically getting a large number of them, or getting them in 'weird' places.
  • Those who get plastic surgery and/or implants.
  • Those who change and/or modify their sex through body modification (altersex.)
  • Transgender and other cisn't individuals who are transsex in order to live as what they desire to be.
  • Otherkin, therian, and other alterhumans who change their body in order to better match their kintype.
  • System members who have non-humans and/or introjects that modify their shared body to better match their innerworld bodies.
