For parents and teens who like gay musicals

The mythology that Hedwig borrows for "The Origin of Love" positively interprets queer experiences of longing, love, and identity as natural and equal to the experiences of straight people. I recommend this for adolescents who are curious about queer lives: their parents, their friends, their own. It is a musical, a love story, a bildungsroman (I love the irony of this), and a piece of modern mythology.
