Big Freedia tackles gun violence in 'Freedia Got a Gun' Documentary (VIDEO)

Freedia Got a Gun

Dance music star BIG FREEDIA is taking her artivism to the streets of NOLA for a brand new documentary for Peacock titled Freedia Got a Gun. It premieres on October 15 and is executive produced by Charles Blow. 

Freedia Got a Gun dives into this country’s centuries-long struggle with gun violence and its ties back to race and toxic masculinity. Devastated after learning her brother Adam was murdered, New Orleans bounce legend Big Freedia uses her platform to raise awareness about the complexities of gun violence.

As Freedia shares her personal journey from growing up gay in the projects through Hurricane Katrina and chasing her musical dreams, she delves deep into the first-hand experiences she and the community have had with gun violence, seeking to uncover the causes behind it.
