My Beautiful Boy is a song for my son, Patrick, and all the brave gay men we've seen fighting for change in this world. From a mother's point of view, watching your child battle discrimination and pain, knowing there's very little you can do about it, can be unbearable. But I could do this -- I could write this song for other parents and kids struggling with the same things. I wanted to say to society: These kids all have mothers. They have parents who love them -- and if they don't, well, they have me. I sat down at the piano, thinking of my son's struggles, and as I started to play, the first words that came out of my mouth were: "My Beautiful Boy." I hope you enjoy this song and share it with other GLBTQ people, parents and children you love!
