Bisexual Blues Icon Billie Holiday Rises Up in New Lee Daniels's Film

The United States vs. Billie Holiday, out on Hulu on February 26, takes on the prescient story of the racism she endured while also highlighting her resilience as a Black bisexual woman in postwar America.Starring a riveting Andra Day (in her first film role) as Holiday, the movie celebrates Holiday’s artistry and singular voice, while also delving deep into the FBI-led plot — spearheaded by Harry Anslinger, the first commissioner of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics — to quash the early civil rights icon.“What terrified them [the FBI] about her was that she had power,” Day tells The Advocate.
