In most parts of the country the word ‘freak’ is used in a negative way.  To San Franciscans, it’s usually a term of endearment.  You may be at a party in SF and hear something like, “oh you’ll like them, they’re true freaks.”  And you smile, because that means they’re authentic, weird, and above all, different.  And different is good.

In San Francisco it’s a bit of a tradition to be different, it’s tradition to not want the same haircut, or suit, or bullshit as everybody else.  It’s tradition to make your own costume with friends or alone, and to be exited about it for days if not weeks.

At an SF street party it’s safe to be as strange as possible, and people will more than likely smile and love you for it.  You get to wear your weirdness as a badge of honor.  In other words, to be unique on the inside and the outside in San Francisco, is to be an honest citizen.

We got to walk around the San Francisco Super Hero Street Fair 2016 and embrace the beautifully strange and wonderful characters.  We danced, we drank, we absorbed the freaky and super human pageantry with smiles, ear to ear.  Enjoy
