Brigham Morris Young (18 January 1854-20 February 1931 (Age 77)) was one of the founders of Young Men's Mutual Improvement Association (YMMIA), the predecessor of the Young Men Program in the Church of Jesus Christ of Last Day Saints (Mormon Church).

Morris Young was the son of Brigham Young and one of his wives, Margaret Pierce. Year 1875 earned Morris Young in a mission mission for the church in the Hawaiian Islands. Shortly after returning from this mission, he was asked by his father to organize YMMIA together with Junius F. Wells and Milton H. Hardy.

In 1883 served Morris Young in another missionary assignment in the Hawaiian Islands. He married Armeda Snow, a daughter of Lorenzo Snow. Their son Lorenzo Snow Young was a prominent architect in Utah.

Year 1885 returned Morris Young, his wife and their children from his service in his second mission in the Hawaiian Islands. Immediately after returning to Utah, Morris Young began to act as a crossdressing (transvestit) singer under the pseudonym Madam Pattirini. Morris Young behaved like Pattirini on venues in northern and central Utah from 1885 to 1900 century. He could perform a compelling falset, and many in the crowd did not realize that Pattirini was Morris Young.
