Two is Better than One:Freedia, Feminism Friday and a Safe Space for Ass- Shaking

Its Friday, Feminism Friday and it's my favorite,little, feminist's birthday. My sister is twenty three, so I decided to dedicate this post to her and one of her favorite people, Big Freedia.

Things have been pretty heavy lately, pretty heavy always,if your walking around this city, in this world, with your eyes open. But there is joy to be found in this "get it how you live", "city that care forgot". Freedia,my sister, and bounce music bring me closest to that place of joy. So, I decided to smile in their honor today.

Feminist academic circles are taking notice of Freedia and what's been going on in New Orleans for years. People are beginning to see that the overt sexuality of bounce music isn't all for male consumption. And that a gay man can flourish in the entertainment business, in a city like ours.

It isn't about the boys, at least not the heterosexual ones, its about us.

Happy Birthday Lil' Sis

Who I might be?


Y'all get back nah,

[I liked this video overall except for the intro, felt like a tourism video then...ass]
