For a community of defiant misfits challenging the status quo, she became a guiding light—and remains one 18 years later, even as popular discourse around gender has dramatically shifted. When Mitchell shot the film nearly two decades ago, he was making a queer fairy tale—the rare entry in the LGBTQ canon that was not a documentary, or a gay manifesto, or a trans statement, though some have interpreted it as falling into one of those categories. It was never a movie about David Bowie either—even if Hedwig may sometimes resemble the rocker. Why did they go see it? He takes it as a compliment that even non-LGBTQ people can relate to someone as specific and unusual as his genderqueer heroine. The series, Anthem: Homunculus, implies that Hedwig lived in the same trailer as Ceann.
