Straight Parents/gay Children
Keeping Families TogetherBook - 1995
"If all the parents with gay relatives could comfortably say, "I have a gay child (grandchild, sibling, niece, nephew, cousin, aunt, uncle)," this book would be unnecessary. But millions of parents cannot do this. Straight Parents/Gay Children can be a great comfort to these millions of parents. Through the collective experience of thousands of families, it reveals that, once over the threshold of misinformation & fear, parents can find liberation in the truth about homosexuality. And this liberation restores & strengthens the natural bonds of love & understanding they have with their sons & daughters."--From the author's Introduction. Straight Parents/Gay Children is a personal account by a father who came to terms with his daughter's homosexuality & discovered that his life was thereby not diminished but enriched. Robert Bernstein's inspiring story relates his own & others' experiences with P-FLAG, an organization that helps keep family together. He asks parents not just to love & accept their gay children, but to speak out on their behalf. "If Bob Bernstein's book were compulsory reading in America, the population of bigots would dwindle at a rapid rate."--Barney Frank, Massachusetts congressman "A valuable addition to psychological self-help collections."--Booklist.
