Homo-hop, ya don’t stop

The annual PeaceOUT Homo Hop Festival takes over Oakland, California for its seventh year this Saturday, featuring out rappers and emcees JenRo, Katastrophe, Julie Fuckin’ Potter and Deep Dickollective among others.

Initially starting the hip-hop fest as part of East Bay Pride celebration, festival director Juba Kalamka (who’s also a founding member of Deep Dickollective) told the Bay Area Reporter, “I wasn’t interested in booking some straight performer for $15,000 that gay people happened to like. Not when there are so many talented queer performers.” Holla!
