So basically, Rent is about "homos, lesbians and cross dressers too". Its great!

RENT is a Pulitzer Prize and multiple Tony Award winning rock opera, with music and lyrics by Jonathan Larson, based on Giacomo Puccini’s opera La Bohème. It tells the story of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York’s Lower East Side in the thriving days of Bohemian Alphabet City, under the shadow of AIDS.

In New York’s East Village in the late 1990’s, a community of artists, writers and musicians struggles to cope with life, love and living with HIV/AIDS. Jane is trying to write her perfect film but can’t seem to connect to the world around her. Her roommate Roger is trying to write his perfect song, and has not left his apartment in six months until he meets the tragic Mimi. All around them their friends fall in and out of love and experience the extreme loss of a close friend. Through their relationships to one another, in addition to the ever present sombre reminder of how brief life can be, the friends begin to find a meaning to life and remind us that there is “No day but today”.
