A MESSAGE FROM THE WRITER:
As a mother of a gay son, I have had the pleasure and privilege of watching my sometimes conflicted young boy transform into a confident young man. Sadly, not all parents are as fortunate or willing. While great strides have been made, we are not there yet. Substance abuse, hate crimes, homelessness, and suicide continue to rise among the LGBT community.
While my son was immediately accepted by our family, I'd be lying if I said that it was a piece of cake. We had many concerns: Will he be safe? Will his friends accept him? Will he find happiness? While some of these questions have been answered and others remain to be seen, we will never fully understand the struggles that he and others have faced and continue to endure.
"If HOLD ON :The Musical can open even one intolerant heart or give hope to one struggling individual, this labor of love will have been worth it!"
