Hidden beneath America’s genteel surface lies a world of secrets.  People who live untraditional lives and push the boundaries of what society may consider normal.  From medical oddities, to the obsessed, to the super obese, Taboo USA documents the lives of those who live as outsiders.  The fringe few who embrace the forbidden, and whose lives have become, taboo. From real life vampires, to a man who believes he is a dog, to the extreme physical conditions of people whose bodies have shocked their communities, the conventional is left behind, and barriers once thought off-limits, are challenged.  Whether they practice dark voodoo traditions, question the conventions of health, or push the boundaries of what and whom to love, there’s more to Taboo USA, than meets the eye.
