“Whether detailing the highs or the lows, Freedia’s tales pop as much as the booty that made her famous.” (Out Magazine)
“God Save the Queen Diva is a snappily dictated story of inverted cultural norms in the wards of New Orleans.” (Eastbay Express)
“In Big Freedia: God Save the Queen Diva (Gallery Books) the rapper goes deeper, with a tale that is as much a capsule history of the bounce-music world as it is his own story.” (Times Picayune)

It's easy to read, non judgmental, not so air-brushed as is typical in autobiographies. As a girly, overweight fat boy, Big Freedia was at first persecuted, but in high school he used his quick wits, humor, musical ability, and outrageous behavior to turn things around and become the school mascot. The darling of the school and local church, he secretly joined the underground Bounce rap scene and soon was making more money than his teachers. He allowed his gender identity to shift in the direction comfortable for him and didn't allow anyone else to define him..a successful strategy in this case.
This is a great book, very entertaining and a great companion to those who know and love her and those new to Big Freedia and her career.
Long live the Queen Diva!
