The most insane thing about this article is that a reporter from the NYT was at a club one block away from my house. If you knew where I lived you would also be surprised.

Okay, so anytime anyone wants to know what living in New Orleans is really like, I will show them this video. It sums it up completely.
Amazed at the space white straight people are taking up. So fucking desperate to get their picture taken with black folk in the background. So damn excited to rub up against a black body. I got nothing but hate.
Yep. White people here LOVE bounce, because it’s so authentic or different or whatever. One of the local punk bars hosts a weekly bounce night that is an absolute fucking nightmare.
Then fuck you
Actually, I’m fairly indifferent to bounce music, but I think it’s because I grew up in New Orleans. I remember bounce music at middle school dances, my prom, every BBQ, block party, picnic, wedding reception, etc etc. I’m glad that sissy bounce artists are finding a wider audience because I like seeing QTPOC making art and getting paid for it. But honestly, bounce music isn’t something I would ever listen to at my house or anything.
A new song from RuPaul & the undisputed Queen Diva of Bounce, Big Freedia! NOLA Bounce music is spreading y’all!!!
