Editorial Reviews

One record producer, the creators of Hedwig and the Angry Inch and top indie rock artists come together to create a tribute album benefiting the Hetrick-Martin Institute, home of the Harvey Milk High School-the first accredited high school in the country for LGBTQ youth.

Follow My Voice: With the Music of Hedwig weaves the compelling, courageous stories of four students at this controversial school with a unique chronicle of the yearlong creation of Wig in a Box, the album whose songs poignantly echo these teens struggles and aspirations. Audiences around the world became instant Hed Heads as Hedwig, like everyone who was ever young, questions TheOrigin of Love, dreams of a Sugar Daddy, feels like a Freak and curses a Wicked Little Town.

Meanwhile, the little known Harvey Milk School for at-risk youth, operating for 20 years in New York City s East Village quickly became the subject of international news when it received accreditation and financial support from NYC. A furious controversy over public funding ignite passionate self-determination from the kids and a deeper commitment from the artists who them-selves know what it s like to be outside the mainstream.

Through a dramatic and vibrant combination of verité documentation, student video diaries, and rare in-studio scenes of artists recording tracks, Follow My Voice offers a powerful look at this unlikely intersection of youth, gender and rock. Includes Yoko Ono, Rufus Wainwright, Cyndi Lauper, Ben Folds, The Breeders, Yo La Tengo, John Cameron Mitchell, They Might Be Giants and more.

Awesome DVD! It was great to see the story behind the CD I've enjoyed for years. Hearing the stories of the courageous LGBTQ youth of HMI was inspiring. Hope they are all doing well today. This is a must have for all Hedheads.

What a spectacular documentary. I thouroughly enjoyed every minute of this film. It really gives great insight into the struggles of young people who are considered different by supposed "normal" society. I really felt for these people. And as a bonus, it has great music from Hedwig and the Angry Itch compiled by the filmmakers.

I watched this movie for the great music performers--Ben Folds, Polyphonic Spree, Rufus Wainwright, etc--and it turned out to be so much more than I expected. The stories of the LGBT youth were so eye-opening and inspriring. Highly recommended!

I LOVE Hedwig and the Angry Inch, I own the movie and soundtrack. The song Wicked Little Town makes gets me every time.This DVD is a documentary about teenagers who attend an alternative high school. Proceeds from the sale of 'Wig in a Box' a tribute album of Hedwig songs recorded by different artists will be donated to this school. It tells the story of how these kids face discrimination from their peers and family. Their stories are mixed in with artists renditions of songs from Hedwig. Some of which are not very good. Seeing the artists do take after take and mess up began to get tiresome after a while. I thought the kids liked Hedwig and were fans of it and would sing some of the songs. They didn't and don't.
