Big Freedia wowed fans at Pridefest Oakland Sunday, September 11. The "Queen of Bounce" put on a show that had people dancing in the street. Big Freedia, of course, appeared on Beyoncé's summer hit, "Break My Soul," from her "Renaissance" album. Pridefest co-chair Sean Sullivan said their event, which featured Crystal Waters and numerous other entertainers, was a success. "Pridefest Oakland was the wonderful celebration of the community we all hoped to deliver," he stated. "Big Freedia and Crystal Waters brought queer Oaklanders up to the stage and brought pride and joy to Oakland."
