Watch: This Mother Would “Trade A Straight Son For ‘A Hello Mom, Meet Nate’ Son”

Sandy and Richard Riccardi are raising “four fabulous boys,” but, says Sandy, “sometimes you wish for what you don’t have.” As in, at least one fabulous gay boy. This is “Charming Gay Son,” an ode to “a son who’d keep me in chatty company / and sit with me and watch Mame, and Fame.” Just a wee bit of stereotyping of what it would be like to raise a gay son? Sure. But it’s also, um, pretty damn accurate. Belts Sandy: “Call me a fag hag to wish for a charming gay son.”
