Big Freedia is taking over — literally.
On Thursday (August 6), the Queen of Bounce joined actress and activist Erika Alexander in a special live takeover of Hillary Clinton's Instagram account. Celebrating the 55th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act, and the late John Lewis' monumental role in getting the legislation passed, the pair spoke about the issues that are important to them, and what it means to uplift black voices in today's world.
For Freedia, one of the most important issues she's fighting for is gun control, especially after losing her brother to gun violence in 2018. "No one needs to be walking around with semi-automatic weapons on these streets," she said. "We have some of the worst gun laws here in Louisiana and it needs to change. My brother Adam was taken for no reason, for nonsense, and this has to change."
