!! OMG, See It: Stonewall Uprising !!


Stonewall Uprising opened yesterday in Manhattan, and although I’m out of town and haven’t had a chance to see it yet, the preview looks great.
Despite its important place in the movement for gay equality, I’ve always been a little fuzzy on what actually happened at Stonewall– there are so many conflicting stories and very few pictures. On top of that, the story’s always seemed a little unreal to me, not only because it’s hard to imagine what it was like to be gay in 1969 but also because it’s kind of impossible to imagine a New York in which it was actually possible for people to fight back against the cops. Hopefully the documentary will clarify things! You should see it this weekend if you can.

!! OMG, a Q&A with Big Freedia !!

freedia.jpg

Earlier this week we introduced you to New Orleans bounce music, a style of call-and-response rap that often inspires women to contort into impossible positions and jiggle their generous booties. Over the past few years the mainstream American media has caught on to this underground club scene thanks to a flamboyantly gay sub-genre known as sissy bounce.

Today we bring you an interview with the queen diva of bounce Big Freedia, who started out as a back-up performer for her friend Katey Red, the first openly gay rapper in New Orleans. Freedia is one of the most respected rappers in the game, performing up to six nights a week at block parties, hip-hop clubs, gay clubs and even in her autobiographical bounce musical “Catch That Beat”.

This month she’ll embark on short North American tour and perform at her hometown Gay Pride for the first time ever. For a sense of the ass-tastic mayhem that Freedia unleashes in the club, watch the video for “Azz Everywhere” and then read our Q&A after the jump!

!! OMG, Remind Me: What’s Courtney Love’s Band again? !!


You guys, I’ve spent the whole morning trying to remember the name of Courtney Love’s band. What could it be!? Oh, wait, I’ve got it… is it Barbie Pussy?
No?
Thank goodness the Lady Love herself is here to remind us in this preview for her Behind the Music, which airs on Monday. Uh, can’t wait!

!! OMG, How Cute: Sneezing Bear Cub !!


Well good morning! It’s a little bear sneezing! (Cue the countdown for someone to point out in the comments that the little cutie has some kind of neurological condition and they are OFFENDED, because that seems to be what happens every time I post any animal video…)
