Big Freedia

One of the wildest live acts you'll ever see

"Big Freedia is the stage name of Freddie Ross, a New Orleans native who, in the late 1990s, helped usher in a wave of openly queer bounce performers. Today, she's one of the few bounce artists with national exposure."

They don’t call Big Freedia the queen diva for no reason; continually bridging the gap between two distinctly different cultures, rap and queerness, Big Freedia’s gender-bending performance is fresh and as full of life as music can get. She got her start in New Orleans where the regional rap style known as bounce reigns supreme, but she’s leading the pack of emerging queer rappers in the sissy bounce genre. Let's just say Miley’s got nothin’ on Freedia’s twerk. General admission. Over 21s only.
