'Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce' Wins 2014 GLAAD Media Award

UPDATE (4/13): Fuse is proud to announce that Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce was honored with the 2014 GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Reality Program in Los Angeles on Saturday, April 12. Other nominees in the category included popular design competition Project Runway, Cyndi Lauper's Still So Unusual and AMC's Small Town Security.


Original Story: Honoring "outstanding images of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community in the media," the 25th Annual GLAAD Media Awards announced today that Fuse's very own Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce has been nominated for Outstanding Reality Program.

The eight-episode docu-series, which introduced over four million viewers to New Orleans bounce musician Big Freedia and her journey from local hip hop icon to national phenomenon, became Fuse's most-watched original series to date. With season one's breakout success, the show was recently renewed for a second season and will feature an even more in-depth look at Freedia's transition into a mainstream star.
