The Untold Gay Story of Aladdin: How Chad Beguelin restored Howard Ashman’s original vision on Broadway

Beguelin on what Ashman’s “lost songs” mean to a gay audience:

“Proud of Your Boy” is one of those songs that I think everyone can relate to because at some point, no matter how horrible your relationship with your family is, you do want to make your parents proud. I don’t want to speak for Howard, but I know for me, there is another level to it being gay, that moment when you realize and you wonder what your parents are going to think.
