Fat Farm is a hand-drawn mini-comic that contains personal stories about fatness, fat hatred, fat liberation, queerness, gender, childhood psychiatric incarceration, conformity, resistance, resilience and survival. Amidst the true tales, there is Foucault and cats. You can get all episodes in THE STORE.

Episode 1: GOAT — Memories of 6 East: a movie about nuns and a writing assignment lead into childhood memories of being locked up in psychiatric institution, forced starvation dieting, the sad refuge of a can of TAB diet soft drink. (2003 by Max Airborne)

Episode 2: MANATEE — Memories of 6 East: an ended friendship triggers memories of life as a queer fat kid in a psychiatric institution, and pocket-sized tools of resistance in desperate times. (2019 by Max Airborne)

Episode 3: OCTOPUS — Memories of 6 East: Present-day obsessions lead to memories of childhood indoctrination into fat-hating culture. A look at Foucault’s panopticism, internalized surveillance, and fat hatred in modern society. (2019 by Max Airborne)
