Anthony Starble – “Oh Father”

Much like Eli Lieb, Anthony Starble is a gay singer-songwriter who’s had some success on YouTube. His song, “We Need to Be Loved,” was featured on Pretty Little Liars and amassed a few thousand views on YouTube.

Here he presents a candid take on the relationship between a gay man and his father. Set in a boxing rink, Starble’s touching song gives us an angst-ridden look at what it’s like to fight a father on being “different.”

Both sad and beautiful, Starble’s song relays the age-old fear that a father may not love his gay son and the pain that fear causes. Check it out below and be sure to find Starble on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.
