Gay rapper Big Freedia, (pronounced "Free-da") is the 6 foot 2, former high school choral director and the undisputed "Queen Diva" of bounce music, New Orleans’ only contemporary original sound. With heavy bass and call-and-response audience participation, it’s a musical hurricane and Big Freedia is at the eye of the storm. Doing four shows a night at venues that range from sports bars to the South by South By Southwest Conference, the 33 year-old Big Freedia also runs a successful decorating business counting the New Orleans Mayor's office amongst its clients. Raised in New Orleans’ 3rd Ward, Big Freedia is bounce’s homegrown rising international star. Pushing boundaries beyond race, class and sexual identification she has caught the worldwide attention of audiences from Berlin to Japan and media coverage includes NPR, the New York Times, the Carson Daly Show, BUST magazine and multiple international press outlets. She was also nominated as Outstanding Music Artist at the 2011 GLADD Media Awards.
