If you ever get a chance to see Big Freedia live, do not hestitate. Go. The bounce artist and butch-queen gives the most amazing live show I’ve ever seen. The audience danced so hard, you had to scrape ass off the floor. The New Orleans artist performs a spin-off of the popular down-south genre bounce, coined Sissy Bounce by the media. Sissy bounce incorporates fierce and fabulous queer performance and gender-bending in to he booty-shaking and bass dropping hip-hop of New Orlean’s bounce genre.
