It started when Zac realized he was a little different than the other kids, and especially his brothers. Instead of being a jock or a nerd like his two of his brothers, he enjoyed to dressing up as his mother, playing with babies, and pushing his baby brother’s carriage down the street. It was at this moment when his father caught him dressed up in his mother’s cloths that he “had unwittingly declared war on his father”. Throughout the movie Zac has many experiences which ultimately led him and his family to embrace his sexuality. Using music as an expression of his sexuality, Zac has been able to learn from each of his experiences and understand and appreciate the man he has become and was born to be.
