Enjoying Macho (and fey) Gay hip hop from NOLA

I'd love to see some brainy critic deal with the issues of having a transgendered performer e.g. NOLA's Katey Red appropriating the basic rap format and having it be a celebration of a dance primarily performed by women, consisting of an incredibly athletic orbiting of da booty. I'm kinda happy to have lived along to see such a sex-political mash up!

And further up the battle lines - here's a video from fellow Sissy Bounce superstar (and I don't use the term lightly) Big Freedia

Big Freedia's sound is clearly much more macho - macho, gay, rap?
