Azz Everywhere: A Sissy Bounce Primer

Big Freedia

Big Freedia, who knew Katey Red in high school, is another one of the city’s sissy bounce representatives. Perhaps her (though Freedia doesn’t perform in drag, the preferred pronouns are feminine) best known song is “Make Your Booty Go.” As you’ll see in the video, the traditional bounce show is heavy on the ass-popping and -shaking, usually at speeds that qualify as a rigorous calisthenic workout. Her gigs usually last something like 20 to 30 minutes, and she does up to six of them a night.
