One nation, under azz: booty-shaking icon Big Freedia is bringing her feel-good Big Easy bounce to some ass-deprived cities this fall, including Detroit.
For the unenlightened, Big Freedia is, well, kind of a big deal. Last week, the 41-year-old New Orleans-based queer icon shared a Billboard magazine cover with fellow LGBTQ+ trailblazers Adam Lambert, Hayley Kiyoko, and Tegan Quin — a cherry-topper to an already long and eclectic list of accomplishments.
Also on her resume? Co-author of her memoir God Save the Queen Diva, reality TV star via Fuse TV's Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce which ran for six seasons, being featured on Beyoncé's career-changing “Formation” and landing her own Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavor, Big Freedia’s Bouncing Beignets.
