Eureka O’Hara is here with her biggest and boldest single yet, “Big Mawma.”
She said, “It’s an empowerment song for bigger women, first and foremost, but also it’s an empowering song for anyone that is made to feel less-than by society.”
“This love is what the world needs to be reminded of. We all got Big Mawma love in us and around us. We just gotta remember to treat it right, accept that we are worthy of it, and respect it!“
The “Big Mawma” music video is the first project from Eureka’s new production company House of Queens.
Having lived as a trans woman for five years before making the difficult decision to de-transition and later identify as nonbinary—because of the struggles she faced living in Tennessee—Eureka now realizes, “I made these choices for other people, to make other people comfortable. Now, my gender expression and gender identity match for me, and for who I’m going to be happy living as.”
Eureka additionally explores gender expression and fluidity in “Big Mawma,” singing in her “male” voice for the first time. “It’s something I should celebrate, regardless of being trans or not. This is the voice I have, so I should be proud of it,” she explains.
