3-5 SENTENCE VERSION OF THE STORY:
Hedwig was a genderqueer rockstar looking for love and acceptance. Her mother never truly supported him/her, one love that s/he was convinced would take care of him, asked Hedwig to go undergo surgery to become a female and left him for another drag queen, and a boy child that s/he brought up and out into the rock n' roll scene ultimately left Hedwig because he was uncertain of her transformation. Finally Hedwig finds a drag queen, Yitzhak, that loves Hedwig for who s/he is and accepts her/him when s/he decides to not dress in drag anymore and be the person Hedwig wants to be.
