An improvised performance at a punk-rock drag party in Soho evolved into a midnight cult-classic. Raised a boy in East Berlin, Hedwig undergoes a personal transformation in order to emigrate to the U.S. where she reinvents herself as the “internationally ignored” but divinely talented genderqueer glam-rock diva, inhabiting a "beautiful gender of one."
