EXCLUSIVE: Big Freedia Reunites With Dad on TV

Big Freedia Reunites With Dad

It's an emotional episode of Fuse's GLAAD Award-winning Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce.

Viewers of Fuse's critically acclaimed reality series Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce know the show's star is a fearlessly outspoken gay man who dresses in feminine clothes and prefers female pronouns, although she's not picky about it.

A bounce music superstar in her native New Orleans, Freedia has watched as the television show that bears her name continues to break viewing records for Fuse, adding to the fame of the artist who has made frequent tours of Europe and written a memoir, Big Freedia: God Save the Queen Diva.

But Freedia hasn't always had it easy. Last year viewers watched as she lost her beloved mother, Vera. And, her relationship with her truck-driver father, Freddie Ross Sr., has been nearly nonexistent for decades.

This week, after Freedia's cowriter insists her memoir needs to feature more information about her childhood relationship with her dad, the two reunite in a powerful scene.

Here's an exclusive preview of the episode, which airs at 11 p.m. Eastern/Pacific Wednesday:
