No closets here!
New Orleans’ own Bounce queen, Big Freedia, identifies as male. Many get confused when she walks onto the stage in long hair and nails with a face beat to the gods, calling herself “Big Freedia the Queen Diva.” But make no mistake, she is a man who prefers to be the pronoun ‘she.’
“I am not transgendered; I am just a gay male… I wear women’s hair and carry a purse, but I am a man. I answer to either ‘he’ or ‘she’,” Freedia said in an interview.
The rapper identifies as pansexual—emotionally and sexually attracted to anyone no matter their gender. She considers herself, agendered, meaning she doesn’t have a gender identity. She came out to her mom as “not gay” and in an interview, she claims that she doesn’t consider herself any sex but “an experience.”
