Fat, feminist lesbian from Arkansas tops British magazine’s “cool list”

Beth Ditto’s music (the group’s name is Gos­sip) isn’t quite my thing, but I’m tick­led by the fact that she’s total­ly unapolo­get­ic by who she is.

I feel some kin­ship with her about hav­ing a big voice, too. Some of us are just blessed with them. Yes, we can (and some of us have!) learn good tech­nique so we aren’t always loud — but we’ll always have big voic­es.
