During the early to mid 1970s, I was a teenager growing up in NYC. I would sneak downtown to get into the clubs in Manhattan. I got into clubs like Studio 54 and The Garage, I also got into various drag clubs, too!
It was during that time, that I first heard the word, “fierce” used as slang. It’s so New York!
The term, “Fierce” was a slang term which meant, fabulous and nothing could touch that kind of fabulous, in other words, that person was, “fierce“!
I still hear the term used now…
To all the Fierce Girls and Guys, happy weekend!
