Hedwig

Hedwig

Seeing Hedwig and the Angry Inch is what finally gave me the courage to come out to family and friends. In Hedwig (and by extension her creator John Cameron Mitchell) there was someone who, while dealing with their own insecurities and shortcomings as an artist, also happened to be completely confident in who they are – both as a performer and a queer person. If there was anything to be taken from Hedwig (aside from many-a great glam rock tracks) it’s that you need to learn to be comfortable in your skin, you have to be open and take pride in not just your sexuality but who you are as a whole.
